Product description


'As the field of wireless communications continues to spread and evolve, students, engineers, practitioners, and researchers face a daunting multitude of books and an enormous literature that often misleads and confuses. Andrea Goldsmith's book offers an up-to-date, comprehensive, reader-friendly, and valuable alternative. It is a veritable tour-de-force that sweeps the entire field with clarity, completeness, and sufficient detail that strikes a masterful balance between breadth and depth. I recommend it highly to anyone interested in a serious foray into the science and technology of wireless communications.' Anthony Ephremides, Cynthia Kim Professor of Information Technology, University of Maryland

'Andrea Goldsmith has successfully created a book that balances the pressing needs of practical design and an appreciation for deep insights that come from theory. Written by a pioneer in adaptive modulation techniques for fading channels, this book is excellent in developing a working knowledge of modern wireless communication techniques that have been invented over the past decade. It is likely to become the standard textbook for wireless communications for the next 10 years.' Volkan Rodoplu, University of California, Santa Barbara

'A brilliant book - Andrea Goldsmith explains in a clear, profound and accurate way not only the fundamentals of wireless communication systems, but also some of the most recent developments in the field, such as MIMO, adaptive modulation, equalization, multicarrier and ad hoc networks. Students pursuing a degree in electrical engineering will find in the first six chapters a comprehensive treatment of the fundamentals in the subject - very few books treat the fundamentals in such a clear and, at the same time, deep way. Students pursuing a Ph.D. degree in the area will find an indispensable reference. For practising engineers, this book will provide the design tools of modern wireless networks. This book will shortly become a classic. It is simply, an excellent job.' Juan M. Romero-Jerez - Associate Professor, University of Malaga, Spain

'Wireless Communications by Andrea Goldsmith is an excellent, reader-friendly book, which maintains the high standards of the Cambridge University Press …'. Professor Stuart Schwartz, Princeton University
