According the reviewer a book of Digital Communications: Fundamentals and Applications (2nd Edition) by Bernard Sklar said that Digital Communications by Sklar is an excellent introduction to the field for the student or the practicing engineer. There is a logical flow from beginning to end, and the book is written in an easy to read style, which allows the reader to grasp the engineering tradeoffs involved in digital communications.
The book is not mathematically rigorous; although formulas are presented, they are not derived. However, I feel that to correct this shortfall may make the book too long, and harder to read. I think it is better to get a general overview of the topic from this book, and to look to other sources where mathematical rigor is desired.
Overall, I highly recommend this book for someone who wants to appreciate the engineering constraints that need to be met in the design of digital communication systems.
And completed that Digital Communications, Second Edition is a thoroughly revised and updated edition of the field's classic, best-selling introduction. With remarkable clarity, Dr. Bernard Sklar introduces every digital communication technology at the heart of today's wireless and Internet revolutions, providing a unified structure and context for understanding them -- all without sacrificing mathematical precision.
Sklar begins by introducing the fundamentals of signals, spectra, formatting, and baseband transmission. Next, he presents practical coverage of virtually every contemporary modulation, coding, and signal processing technique, with numeric examples and step-by-step implementation guidance. Coverage includes:
- Signals and processing steps: from information source through transmitter, channel, receiver, and information sink
- Key tradeoffs: signal-to-noise ratios, probability of error, and bandwidth expenditure
- Trellis-coded modulation and Reed-Solomon codes: what's behind the math
- Synchronization and spread spectrum solutions
- Fading channels: causes, effects, and techniques for withstanding fading
- The first complete how-to guide to turbo codes: squeezing maximum performance out of digital connections
- Implementing encryption with PGP, the de facto industry standard
Whether you're building wireless systems, xDSL, fiber or coax-based services, satellite networks, or Internet infrastructure, Sklar presents the theory and the practical implementation details you need. With nearly 500 illustrations and 300 problems and exercises, there's never been a faster way to master advanced digital communications.
