  Title:  Cross-layer resource allocation in wireless communications : techniques and models from PHT and MAC layer interaction
Author:  Perez-Niera, Ana I.
Call number:  TK5103.2.P438C
Availability:  Click here

Synopsis:
Resource allocation in wireless networks is traditionally approached either through information theory or communications networks. To break down the barriers between these distinct approaches, this book bridges the gap between the physical and network layers by providing cross-layer resource allocation techniques, models and methodologies. It presents resource allocation as a cross-layer design based on an optimization of MAC layer parameters within an accurate model of the PHY layer.

* Unique cross-layer approach to optimising network resources by thoroughly linking the physical and MAC layer
* Provides R&D and network design engineers cross-layer techniques, models and methodologies for improved quality of service the most practical book in this area on the market
* Authors are from a top telecommunications research center in Barcelona

  Title:  Adaptive signal processing in wireless communications
Author:  Ibnkahla, Mohamed.
Call number:  9781420046014

Synopsis:
Adaptive techniques play a key role in modern wireless communication systems. The concept of adaptation is emphasized in the Adaptation in Wireless Communications Series through a unified framework across all layers of the wireless protocol stack ranging from the physical layer to the application layer, and from cellular systems to next-generation wireless networks. This specific volume, Adaptive Signal Processing in Wireless Communications is devoted to adaptation in the physical layer. It gives an in-depth survey of adaptive signal processing techniques used in current and future generations of wireless communication systems. Featuring the work of leading international experts, it covers adaptive channel modeling, identification and equalization, adaptive modulation and coding, adaptive multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) systems, and cooperative diversity. It also addresses other important aspects of adaptation in wireless communications such as hardware implementation, reconfigurable processing, and cognitive radio.

A second volume in the series, Adaptation and Cross-layer Design in Wireless Networks(cat no.46039) is devoted to adaptation in the data link, network, and application layers. [As taken from book cover]

  Title:  Adaptation and cross layer design in wireless networks
Author:  Ibnkahla, Mohamed.
Call number:  TK5103.2.A221A
Availability:  Click here

Synopsis:
The book presents state-of-the-art adaptation techniques and methodologies, including cross-layer adaptation, joint signal processing, coding and networking, selfishness in mobile ad hoc networks, cooperative and opportunistic protocols, adaptation techniques for multimedia support, self -organizing routing, and tunable security services. It presents several new theoretical paradigms and analytical findings which are supported with various simulation and experimental results.

Adaptation in wireless communications is needed in order to achieve high capacity and ubiquitous communications. The current trend in wireless communication systems is to make adaptation dependent upon the state of the relevant parameters in all layers of the system. Focusing on simplified cross layer design approaches, this volume describes advanced techniques such as adaptive resource management, adaptive modulation and coding, 4G communications, QoS, diversity combining, and energy and mobility aware MAC protocols. The first volume in the series, Adaptive Signal Processing in Wireless Communications (cat no.46012) covers adaptive signal processing at the physical layer. [As taken from book cover]
