A first graduate course in principles of communications engineering. Topics include a brief review of random process theory, principles of optimum receiver design for discrete and continuous messages, matched filters and correlation receivers, signal design, error performance for various signal geometries, Mary signaling, linear and nonlinear analog modulation, and quantization. The course also treats aspects of system design such as propagation, link power calculations, noise models, RF components, and antennas. Prerequisite: Undergraduate course in probability.
