    Subjects: Wireless Communications

This book covers the fundamental principles of space-time coding for wireless communications over multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channels, and sets out practical coding methods for achieving the performance improvements predicted by the theory. The theory and practice sections can be used independently of each other. Written by one of the inventors of space-time block coding, this volume is ideal for a graduate student familiar with the basics of digital communications, and for engineers implementing the theory in real systems.
