Single and Multi-Carrier DS-CDMA: Multi-User Detection, Space-Time Spreading, Synchronisation, Networking and Standards (0470863099) cover image


This volume is dedicated to a range of CDMA and MC-CDMA transmission aspects of systems designed for communicating over fading wireless channels.

Currently, a technical in-depth book on this subject, which has a similar detailed exposure of the recent advances in CDMA, M-ary CDMA and MC-CDMA, is unavailable.  A further attraction of the joint treatment of these topics is that it allows the reader to view their design trade-offs in a comparative context.

Divided into five main parts:

Part I: provides a detailed introduction to the subject of CDMA systems designed for employment in various application

Part II: deals with the currently hot topic of genetic algorithm assisted multiuser detection

Part III: gives a detailed account of new, reduced-complexity M-ary CDMA schemes

Part IV: considers a range of novel MC-CDMA schemes which have the potential of supporting numerous design objectives

Part V: provides an overview of the 3G wireless system proposals and characterises the expected network capacity gains attained with the aid of adaptive CDMA systems

By providing an all-encompassing self-contained treatment this groundbreaking volume will have appeal to researchers, postgraduate students, academics practising research and development engineers working for wireless communications and computer networking companies, as well as senior undergraduate students and technical managers in the field.
