      Course Description
    This course introduces basic principles and concept to design modern digital communication systems, including major components of a communication system, various communication channel models, basic transmitter and receiver designs (baseband signal, bandpass signal, Qsignal, I-signal, modulation/demodulation process), various digital modulation techniques (PAM, PSK, QAM, FSK, NRZ, CPM, GMSK), optimum detection and demodulation methods (MAP and ML detectors, error probability, optimum detector for AWGN channel, optimum detection and error probability analysis for various modulation schemes, non-coherent detector), carrier and symbol synchronization (carrier phase and symbol timing recovery), channel capacity and channel encoding/decoding (error-correction codes, basic linear block codes, convolutional codes, TCM, Viterbi decoding algorithm). The principles and methodologies discussed are important in the design and optimization of modern communication systems such as 4G LTE, WiFi, optical fiber/free-space communications, underwater acoustic communications and so on.
