Library E-Books

We are signed up with aggregators who resell networkable e-book editions of our titles to academic libraries. These editions, priced at par with simultaneous hardcover editions of our titles, are not available direct from Stylus.

These aggregators offer a variety of plans to libraries, such as simultaneous access by multiple library patrons, and access to portions of titles at a fraction of list price under what is commonly referred to as a "patron-driven demand" model.

In recent years, a considerable amount of effort has been devoted, both in industry and academia, towards the design, performance analysis and evaluation of modulation schemes to be used in wireless and optical networks and towards the development of the next and future generations of mobile cellular communication systems. Modulation Theory is intended to serve as a complementary textbook for courses dealing with Modulation Theory or Communication Systems, but also as a professional book, for engineers who need to update their knowledge in the communications area.

The modulation aspects presented in the book use modern concepts of stochastic processes, such as autocorrelation and power spectrum density, which are novel for undergraduate texts or professional books, and provides a general approach for the theory, with real life results, applied to professional design.

This text is suitable for the undergraduate as well as the initial graduate levels of Electrical Engineering courses, and is useful for the professional who wants to review or get acquainted with the a modern exposition of the modulation theory.

The book covers signal representations for most known waveforms and Fourier analysis and presents an introduction to Fourier transform and signal spectrum (including the concepts of convolution, autocorrelation and power spectral density) for deterministic signals. It introduces the concepts of probability, random variables and stochastic processes (including autocorrelation, cross-correlation, power spectral and cross-spectral densities) for random signals and their applications to the analysis of linear systems. This chapter also includes the response of specific non-linear systems, such as power amplifiers.

The book presents amplitude modulation with random signals--including analog and digital signals--and discusses performance evaluation methods, presents quadrature amplitude modulation using random signals. Several modulation schemes are discussed, including SSB, QAM, ISB, C-QUAM, QPSK and MSK. Their autocorrelation and power spectrum densities are computed. A thorough discussion on angle modulation with random modulating signals, along with frequency and phase modulation, and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing is provided. Their power spectrum densities are computed using the Wiener-Khintchin theorem.

Marcelo Sampaio de Alencar received his bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (UFPE), Brazil, 1980; his master's degree in Electrical Engineering from Universidade Federal da Paraiba (UFPB), Brazil, 1988; and his Ph.D. from the University of Waterloo, Canada, 1994. He worked for the Department of Electrical Engineering, Federal University of Paraiba (UFPB); for the Federal University of Campina Grande (UFCG); for the State University of Santa Catarina (UDESC); and for the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA). He was visiting professor at the University of Toronto and is now visiting professor at the Senai Cimatec, Salvador, Brazil. He is founder and President of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Communications (Iecom). He has been awarded several scholarships and grants from the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Research (CNPq), from the IEEE Foundation, from the University of Waterloo, and from the Federal University of Paraiba. He received an achievement award from the Brazilian Telecommunications Society (SBrT), an award from the Medicine College of the Federal University of Campina Grande (UFCG), and an achievement award from the College of Engineering of the Federal University of Pernambuco. He published over 500 engineering and scientific papers and 26 books. He also wrote chapters for 12 books. He served on the Board of Directors of SBrT and on the SBMO Council. He is a Registered Professional Engineer, and he was a columnist for the traditional Brazilian newspaper Jornal do Commercio. He is a laureate of the prestigious 2014 Attilio Giarola Medal of the Brazilian Microwave and Optoelectronics Society (SBMO).
