- The design and performance of OFDM modems are highlighted, covering both Gaussian and wideband fading channels, frequency domain synchronization as well as adaptive single– and multi–user OFDM
- Offers a comparative study of OFDM and MC–CDMA, discussing spreading sequences, adaptive modulation and the attainable performance in synchronous environments
- Contains an advanced section on genetic algorithm aided joint multi–user channel estimation techniques for multi–user SDMA–OFDM
- Introduces an avant–garde design principle, which aims for directly minimizing the bit error ratio (BER) at the output of the multi–user OFDM system
As an introductory treatment of the complex subject of OFDM, this primer text will be attractive to a wide readership, including postgraduate students, systems and development engineers, as well as communications managers and practitioner.
