OFDM and MC-CDMA: A Primer
Description: Wireless communications has witnessed a tremendous growth during the past decade and further
spectacular enabling technology advances are expected in an effort to render ubiquitous wireless
connectivity a reality. Currently, a technical in-depth book on this subject is unavailable, which has
a similar detailed exposure of OFDM, MIMO-OFDM and MC-CDMA. A further attraction of the joint
treatment of these topics is that it allows the reader to view their design trade-offs in a
comparative context. Divided into three main parts: Part I provides a detailed exposure of OFDM
designed for employment in various applications Part II is another design alternative applicable in
the context of OFDM systems where the channel quality fluctuations observed are averaged out
with the aid of frequency-domain spreading codes, which leads to the concept of MC-CDMA Part III
discusses how to employ multiple antennas at the base station for the sake of supporting multiple
users in the uplink By providing an all-encompassing self-contained treatment this volume will
appeal to a wide readership, as it is both an easy-reading textbook and a high-level research
