Communication Systems Modeling and Simulation using MATLAB and Simulink (Hardcover)
K. C. Raveendranathan
This is probably the first book that employs the technique of simulation experiments as a means of reinforcing the basic concepts of communication theory. Undergraduate students are generally exposed to a mathematically rigorous treatment of communications theory but seldom have the benefit of a practical-orientated approach employing modelling and simulation for a thorough assimilation of the subject. This book can supplement any standard textbook to cover this significant lacuna in the existing learning methodology. It uses MATLAB®, the language of the technical computing fraternity, for the purpose. The introductory chapters provide an overview of computer simulation and MATLAB programming concepts. Thereafter, communications concepts are presented in the traditional manner but followed up with appropriate simulations in MATLAB/Simulink®. Relevant MATLAB source code is given whenever it is used to illustrate a point. All the source code given in the text has been tested on MATLAB kernel version 7.10 (Release R2010a) and is provided in the accompanying CD.
