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.
