Modern Digital And Analog Communications Systems – B. P. Lathi – 3rd Edition


This text presents the basic and intermediate level treatment of modern digital and . The basics of are introduced first, without using probabilistic concepts with the intention that, with this solid base, will be ready to master probabilistic concepts introduced in later chapters.

An effort is made to give an intuitive insight – rather than just proofs – as well as heuristic explanations of theoretical results, wherever possible. The explanations and examples clarify abstract mathematical results, and illustrations are also included.

Ideal for the first systems course for electrical , Modern Communication Systems offers students a superb pedagogical style; it consistently does an excellent job of explaining difficult concepts clearly, using prose as well as mathematics. The author makes every effort to give intuitive insights–rather than just proofs–as well as heuristic explanations of theoretical results wherever possible. Featuring lucid explanations, well-chosen examples clarifying abstract mathematical results, and excellent illustrations, this unique text is highly informative and easily accessible to students.
