Textbook
An Introduction to Analog and Digital Communications, 2nd EditionJanuary 2006, ©2007

Given the highly mathematical nature of communication theory, it is rather easy for the reader to lose sight of the practical side of communication systems. Throughout the book, the authors have made a special effort to move through the mathematical treatment at an easytograsp level, and also to point out the practical relevance of the theory wherever it is appropriate to do so. Drs. Haykin’s other text, Communication Systems reaches out to a higher level of math rigor. Also, Introduction to Digital and Analog Communications, 2e offers the probability coverage later in the book (chapter 8) since probability theory is not critical to the understanding of modulation. This also contributes to the accessible approach of the text.
Introduction to Digital and Analog Communications, 2e is selfcontained and suited for a one or twosemester course in communication systems taken by Electrical Engineering juniors or seniors. The book offers flexibility for organizing the course material to suit the interests of course professors and students.
Reviewer Quotes:
My current textbook by Proakis/Salehi: Communication Systems
Engineering, 2e did not meet my student’s capabilities and
expectations. The textbook is too complicated and overloaded with
heavy mathematical equations. The material is not always logically
presented. Not to mention, there is 800 pages of text. I was
impressed with Haykin/Moher’s: Introduction to Digital and
Analog Communications, 2e and the straightforward comprehensive
material coverage of the basic principles of communication theory.
Also, the text is logically written with easy to follow and
understand mathematical equations and examples. Absolutely, I would
like to use this textbook for my communications systems class as
soon as it will be possible.” Andrei

“ Overall, I found the concepts are clearly explained, the
chapters are well motivated by their introductions, “Lessons
to be learned” at the beginning of each chapter are
particularly appealing, and concluded with well put
summaries. A very wellwritten introductory text to grasp the
basics of communication systems.” Aylin YenerPenn State

Index.
· “Lessons to be Learned” at the beginning of each chapter.
· Chapters 3 and 4 are devoted to analog communications, with Chapter 3 covering amplitude modulation and Chapter 4 covering angle modulation. In the previous edition they were covered later and also in one chapter (chapter 7).
· Chapter 5 on pulse modulation covers the concepts pertaining to the transition from analog to digital communications.
· Chapters 6 & 7 are devoted to digital communications, with Chapter 6 covering Baseband data transmission and Chapter 7 covering bandpass data transmission.
· Chapter 8 – Random Signals and Noise starts are coverage of probability theory
· New Chapter 10, in many ways brings material covered in Chapters 29 into practical context by discussing the important transmission media that form the backbone of communication systems like transmission lines, optical fiber, multiplexing signals on wired systems, radio systems and terrestrial propagation.
· Robust problems sets, examples, and exercises.
· In addition to the problem sets, exercises are presented to students to help improve their understanding of the material covered in the chapter. The answers to the exercises are given at the end of the book.
· Abundance of examples: Numerous examples, worked out in detail, are included to help students develop an intuitive grasp of the theory.
· MATLAB experiments.
· Appendices to the book include power ratio and the decibel, Fourier series, Bessel functions, Error function, and an assortment of mathematical tables.
