Discover cutting-edge research in wireless communications

This book presents cutting-edge research in wireless communications, particularly in the fast-growing subject of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless communication systems. It begins with an introduction, which includes historical notes and a review of turbo-information processing and MIMO wireless communications, and goes on to cover:

  • MIMO channel capacity

  • BLAST architectures

  • Space-time turbo codes and turbo decoding principles

  • Turbo-BLAST

  • Turbo-MIMO systems

The material is complemented with abundant illustrations and computer experiments that are designed to help readers reinforce their understanding of the underlying subject matter. Space-Time Layered Information Processing for Wireless Communications is an ideal resource for researchers in academia and industry and an excellent textbook for related courses at the graduate level.
