The course gives a comprehensive and advanced view of the general structure of digital communication systems including transmitter and receiver designs as well as the different types of wireless channels that may be encountered in communication systems. In particular, it covers topics like real and complex random vectors, signal space representations, advanced digital modulation/demodulation techniques such as OFDM, OFDM-IM, OFDM-SNM, OFDM-SPM, MIMO-SM, digital data transmission over noisy and faded channels and the design of ideal transceivers for recovering the received data, the calculation of key performance metrics in digital communication systems such as bit error probability, data rate, throughput, etc.
