This book addresses a new coding solution to the challenge of communicating more bits of information in the same radio spectrum

Bandwidth Efficient Coding addresses the major challenge in communication engineering today: how to communicate more bits of information in the same radio spectrum. Energy and bandwidth are needed to transmit bits, and bandwidth affects capacity the most. Methods have been developed that are ten times as energy efficient at a given bandwidth consumption as simple methods. These employ signals with very complex patterns and are called "coding" solutions. The book begins with classical theory before introducing new techniques that combine older methods of error correction coding and radio transmission in order to create narrowband methods that are as efficient in both spectrum and energy as nature allows. Other topics covered include modulation techniques such as CPM, coded QAM and pulse design. In addition, this book:

  • Explores concepts and new transmission methods that have arisen in the last 15 years
  • Discusses the method of faster than Nyquist signaling
  • Provides self–education resources by including design parameters and short MATLAB routines

Bandwidth Efficient Coding takes a fresh look at classical information theory and introduces a different point of view for research and development engineers and graduate students in communication engineering and wireless communication.

JOHN B. ANDERSON is the Ericsson Chair in Digital Communication at Lund University in Sweden. He received his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Cornell University in 1972. His research work is in coding and communication algorithms, bandwidth–efficient coding, and data compression. Dr. Anderson served as President and Vice President of the IEEE Information Theory Society, and in 1983 and 2006 was Co–Chair of the IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory. He served on the Publications Board of IEEE on three occasions, and was Editor–in–Chief of IEEE Press during 1994–96 and 2012–13. He won the Humboldt Research Prize in 1991. Dr. Anderson is the author of two other Wiley–IEEE Press titles: Understanding Information Transmission (2005) and Digital Transmission Engineering, Second Edition (2005).
