The course presents fundamental principles underlying the transmission and reception of digital information, and studies the different parts of a modern digital communication system. Specifically, the course will touch upon different digital modulation schemes, as well as the design and performance analysis of optimum receivers for additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channels. Some concepts of information theory and channel coding will also be studied. Further, techniques for carrier and symbol synchronization will be presented. Communication over bandlimited channels will also be explored, and the effects of intersymbol interference (ISI), as well as channel equalization techniques will be considered.
