**Course description and objectives**

The past
decade has seen many advances in physical-layer wireless communication theory
and their implementation in wireless systems. This course takes a unified view
of the fundamentals of wireless communication and explains the web of concepts
underpinning these advances at a level accessible to graduate students with a
basic background in probability and digital communication. Topics covered
include MIMO (multiple input multiple output) communication, space-time coding,
OFDM, and CDMA. The concepts are illustrated using many examples from wireless
systems such as GSM, IS-95 (CDMA), IS-856 (1x EV-DO), and Flash OFDM.
Particular emphasis is placed on the interplay between concepts and their
implementation in systems.
