COURSE DESCRIPTION

This is a undergraduate course on the theory and analysis of wireless communication systems, with an
emphasis on understanding

the unique characteristics of these systems.
After finishing the course, the
student
understand the theory of wireless propagation environment and wireless communication
systems, to be able to design and analyze optimum receivers for various wireless
comm
unication in
fading channel. Besides, this course will be trained

the theories and practice of diversity, multiple input
multiple output (MIMO) system, space time coding, orthogonal frequency division multiple access,

and
cooperative networks

and hence
to

be able to simulate
wireless communication systems
.

SPECIAL COMMENTS

Homework
s
:

Homework assignments are given
as the schedule
. Each problem set is
due a week

after it
has been handed out. We will not accept late
submissions. Sample solutions will be posted the same
day, credits will be posted one week after the due date. No credit will be given for solutions that do not
show a minimum effort or to copied
solutions. We encourage you to
discuss homework problems wit
h
your classmates, but you must hand in your own work. On
scheluled

day
s

of the course, the students
are expected to prepare and present a paper describing an application or technology for wireless or
mobile systems.
