Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing for Wireless Communications
Ye (Geoffrey) Li, Gordon L. Stuber
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing for Wireless Communications is an edited volume with contributions by leading authorities in the subject of OFDM. Its coverage consists of principles, important wireless topics (e.g. Synchronization, channel estimation, etc.) and techniques. Included is information for advancing wireless communication in a multipath environment with an emphasis on implementation of OFDM in base stations.
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing for Wireless Communications provides a comprehensive introduction of the theory and practice of OFDM. Chapter 1, by G. Stüber, briefly introduces the history of OFDM or multicarrier modulation and basic concepts of OFDM, Chapter 2, by Y. (G.) Li, presents design of OFDM systems for wireless communications, various impairments caused by wireless channels, and some other types of OFDM related modulation. Chapter 3 to Chapter 6 address different techniques to mitigate the impairments and to improve the performance of OFDM systems. Chapter 3, by J. Cioffi and L. Hoo, focuses on system optimization techniques, including channel partitioning, loading of parallel channels, and optimization through coding. Chapter 4, by S. Wilson and P. Ödling, addresses timing- and frequency-offset estimation in OFDM systems. It also briefly discusses sampling clock offset estimation and correction. Chapter 5, by Y. (G.) Li, deals with pilot aided and decision-directed channel estimation for OFDM systems. Chapter 6, by C. Tellambura and M. Friese, discusses various techniques to reduce the peak-to-average power ratio of OFDM signals. To facilitate the readers, extensive subject indices and references are given at the end of the book. Even though each chapter is written by different experts, symbols and notations in all chapters of the book are consistent.
