Supported by the expert-level advice of pioneering researchers, Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access Fundamentals and Applications provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the foundations and applications of one of the most promising access technologies for current and future wireless networks. It includes authoritative coverage of the history, fundamental principles, key techniques, and critical design issues of OFDM systems.

Covering various techniques of effective resource management for OFDM/OFDMA-based wireless communication systems, this cutting-edge reference: * Addresses open problems and supplies possible solutions * Provides a concise overview of key techniques for adaptive modulation * Investigates radio channel modeling in OFDMA-based wireless communication systems * Details detection strategies of frequency-domain equalization for broadband communications * Introduces a novel combination of OFDM and the orbital angular momentum of the electromagnetic field to improve performance * Contains extensive treatment of adaptive MIMO beamforming suitable for multiuser access This valuable resource supplies readers with a macro-level understanding of OFDMA and its key issues, while providing a systematic manual for those whose work is directly related to practical OFDMA and other multiuser communication systems projects.
