Proposed literature

  • E. A. Lee, D. G. Messerschmitt: Digital Communication : Very good overview, many clear examples. The lecture complies with the book in some parts.
  • J. G. Proakis: Digital Communications : A good book.
  • H. D. Lüke: Signalübertragung : Good textbook, detailed description of signals and systems.
  • K. D. Kammeyer: Nachrichtenübertragung
  • C. Shannon: A mathematical theory of communication : The classic papers about modern communications engineering. Always recommendable!
