Wireless Communications and Spectrum Characterization in Impaired Channel Environments

  title={Wireless Communications and Spectrum Characterization in Impaired Channel Environments},
  author={Srikanth Pagadarai},
The demand for sophisticated wireless applications capable of conveying information content represented in various forms such as voice, data, audio and video is ever increasing. In order to support such applications, either additional wireless spectrum is needed or advanced signal processing techniques must be employed by the next-generation wireless communication systems. An immediate observation that can be made regarding the first option is that radio frequency spectrum is a limited natural…
