Modern Digital and Analog Communication Systems

Fourth Edition

B. P. Lathi and Zhi Ding

The Oxford Series in Electrical and Computer Engineering

An ideal first text on communication systems in electrical engineering, Modern Digital and Analog Communication Systems is now in its fourth edition. Retaining the superb pedagogical style of the first three editions, the authors first introduce the fundamentals of signals and systems and core communication topics; they then present the tools essential to the design and analysis of digital communications. Featuring a seamless blend of mathematics and heuristics, carefully crafted examples to clarify mathematical abstractions, and new and updated MATLAB exercises, this text provides a thorough coverage of modern communication system theory and application that is easily accessible to students.

New to this Edition:

  • New discussion of technological advances and applications.
  • New chapters (12 and 13) on spread spectrum communications and frequency selective channels and OFDM systems.
  • New and updated MATLAB examples.
  • New material on such topics as code division multiple-access (CDMA), orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), equalization, soft decoding, turbo codes, and low-density parity check (LDPC) codes.
