Course objectives Communication is a process by which a message generated at one point is represented by a signal which is transmitted through an imperfect medium to a receiver, where an estimate of the message is reconstructed. The goals of this course include: an understanding of how modulators and demodulators work; an appreciation of the time/frequency representation of signals and the eects of various kinds of modulation schemes on the same; insight into the role of random processes in communication systems analysis; an understanding of how the characteristics of various modulation schemes aect their performance. Topics 1. Quantization Sampling of stochastic signals Optimal quantizer structure. 2. Basics of decision theory Hypothesis testing under the probability of error criterion: MAP and ML tests. 3. Digital modulation techniques Memoryless modulation: PAM, PSK, QAM, FSK, Multidimensional signaling, DPSK Modulation with memory: CPM, CPFSK. 4. Optimum demodulation for AWGN Optimal receiver structure, performance analysis, optimal signaling. 5. Comparison of digital modulation schemes Bandwidth, power, error probability Uncertainty principle, 2BT-Theorem Shannon bandwidth of a signal set, spectral eciency. 6. ISI and equalization techniques (G6). 7. Synchronization. 2

8. Wireless communication Demodulation of signals with random amplitude distortion CDMA OFDM. Prerequisites ENEE 420: Communication Systems (or equivalent) ENEE 620: Random Processes in Communication and Control (or equivalent). Required topics include (i) a basic understanding of analog and digital communication (e.g., analog and digital modulation, multiplexing, noise and bit error rate), (ii) a basic knowledge of signals and systems and (iii) a working knowledge of probability and stochastic processes. Grading system The nal grade for the course will be based on two tests and a nal exam; their respective contributions to the nal grade are given below. All three examinations will be conducted in the classroom. (i) Exam I (30%) : In-class Mid-October 2013 (TBA). (ii) Exam II (30%) : In-class Mid-November 2013 (TBA). (iii) Final Exam (40%) : In-class Dec. 16, 2013, 8-10 am. During the course of the semester, several problem sets will be given and their solutions provided subsequently. Additional details on other aspects of the course will be communicated in due time.
