Other topics include an information retrieval method based on sequential access patterns, a parallel model of evolutionary computing based on genetic algorithms, a blind particle filtering algorithm in a flat fading channel, and cognitive radio spectrum detection in OFDM systems.
The basic premise of adaptive modulation is a real-time balancing of the link budget in flat fading through adaptive variation of the transmitted power level, symbol transmission rate, constellation size, BER, coding rate/scheme, or any combination of these parameters.
This essential textbook on the principles and applications of mobile radio is an all-encompassing current treatment of the area, addressing both the traditional elements, such as Rayleigh fading, BER in flat fading channels, and equalization, and more recently emerging topics like multi-user detection in CDMA systems, OFDM and smart antennas.
