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.
