A new edition that takes students to the cutting edge and back!

Extensively revised and updated, this new fourth edition of COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS is the most complete undergraduate textbook on the theories and principles behind today's most advanced communications systems.

New features include:

  • MATLAB computer experiments that demonstrate important aspects of communication theory

  • Expanded coverage of emerging digital technologies, such as digital subscriber line (DSL), carrierless amplitude modulation/phase modulation (CAP), and discrete multi-tone (DMT)

  • Dozens of examples that relate theory to real-world communication systems

Superbly organized, the text skillfully guides students through topics ranging from pulse modulation to passband digital transmission, and from random processes to error-control coding. Throughout, Haykin presents difficult concepts in language that students can easily understand.


A textbook for a one-year or one-semester undergraduate course in communication theory. The first part is devoted to introductory material and analog communications, the second part to digital communications, and the final part to advanced topics. The material is illustrated with examples and computer-oriented experiments. Except for the first and last chapters, each chapter ends with numerous problems. Assumes a knowledge of electronics, circuit theory, and probability theory. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
