TL;DR: The book gives many numerical illustrations expressed in large collections of system performance curves, allowing the researchers or system designers to perform trade-off studies of the average bit error rate and symbol error rate.
Abstract: noncoherent communication systems, as well as a large variety of fading channel models typical of communication links often found in the real world, including single- and multichannel reception with a large variety of types. The book gives many numerical illustrations expressed in large collections of system performance curves, allowing the researchers or system designers to perform trade-off studies of the average bit error rate and symbol error rate. This book is a very good reference book for researchers and communication engineers and may also be a source for supplementary material of a graduate course on communication or signal processing. Nowadays, many new books attach a CD-ROM for more supplementary material. With the many numerical examples in this book, it appears that an attached CD-ROM would be ideal for this book. It would be even better to present the computer program in order to be interactive so that the readers can plug in their arbitrary parameters for the performance evaluation. —H. Hsu

TL;DR: A method is developed for representing any communication system geometrically and a number of results in communication theory are deduced concerning expansion and compression of bandwidth and the threshold effect.
Abstract: A method is developed for representing any communication system geometrically Messages and the corresponding signals are points in two "function spaces," and the modulation process is a mapping of one space into the other Using this representation, a number of results in communication theory are deduced concerning expansion and compression of bandwidth and the threshold effect Formulas are found for the maximum rate of transmission of binary digits over a system when the signal is perturbed by various types of noise Some of the properties of "ideal" systems which transmit at this maximum rate are discussed The equivalent number of binary digits per second for certain information sources is calculated

TL;DR: This best-selling, easy to read book offers the most complete discussion on the theories and principles behind today's most advanced communications systems.
Abstract: This best-selling, easy to read book offers the most complete discussion on the theories and principles behind today's most advanced communications systems. Throughout, Haykin emphasizes the statistical underpinnings of communication theory in a complete and detailed manner. Readers are guided though topics ranging from pulse modulation and passband digital transmission to random processes and error-control coding. The fifth edition has also been revised to include an extensive treatment of digital communications.

TL;DR: Performance of time-hopping spread-spectrum multiple-access systems employing impulse signal technology for both analog and digital data modulation formats under ideal multiple- access channel conditions is estimated.
Abstract: Attractive features of time-hopping spread-spectrum multiple-access systems employing impulse signal technology are outlined, and emerging design issues are described. Performance of such communications systems in terms of achievable transmission rate and multiple-access capability are estimated for both analog and digital data modulation formats under ideal multiple-access channel conditions.

TL;DR: This paper solves the general problem of adaptive channel equalization without resorting to a known training sequence or to conditions of limited distortion.
Abstract: Conventional equalization and carrier recovery algorithms for minimizing mean-square error in digital communication systems generally require an initial training period during which a known data sequence is transmitted and properly synchronized at the receiver. This paper solves the general problem of adaptive channel equalization without resorting to a known training sequence or to conditions of limited distortion. The criterion for equalizer adaptation is the minimization of a new class of nonconvex cost functions which are shown to characterize intersymbol interference independently of carrier phase and of the data symbol constellation used in the transmission system. Equalizer convergence does not require carrier recovery, so that carrier phase tracking can be carried out at the equalizer output in a decision-directed mode. The convergence properties of the self-recovering algorithms are analyzed mathematically and confirmed by computer simulation.
