Devoted entirely to adaptation in the physical layer, this volume gives an in-depth survey of signal processing techniques used in current and future generations of wireless communication systems. The breadth of coverage spans a range of topics from adaptive channel modeling and identification and equalization to modulation and coding, multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) systems, and cooperative diversity. The book also addresses other important aspects of adaptation, including hardware implementation, reconfigurable processing, and cognitive radio. Book jacket.
