3.0 out of 5 stars Review on Communication Systems
THis book provide a diverse range of subjects in the field of Eletronics and Communication Theory. It is worth reading, but you could find a recent edition to read.

By A Customer
This review is from: Communication Systems (Hardcover)
I suggest them to study signals & systems , probability and advanced maths first , thethey may try to go deep in communications. Communications theory is not a childs game , so you have to be on the level to understand what Haykin says in that book ! then this book offers youa great level in communication systems, it's because the information is treated with a very big math rigurosely, The material is illustrated with examples and computer-oriented experiments. Except for the first and last chapters, each chapter ends with numerous problems. I found this book excellent, even if it can be tough to read for people without a good math background or previous knowledge in the field. Anyway if you are interest in looking for particular reference it is really excellent and gives also a brief about where to go for further info at the end of each chapter. Definitely not for undergraduate students looking for a basic idea, but very good for a deeper mathematical approach. It think everyone who works in this field should have a copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavyweight and focused, 2 Jun. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Communication Systems (Hardcover)
This book is very thorough in a mathematical way, but those with practical knowledge in this subject are not catered for. However those who leave university never having used a soldering iron will be happy. Many concepts that are easier from an engineering viewpoint, eg, the radio spectrum (blindingly obvious to anyone) are obscured by the theoretical stance. Even concepts like autocorrelation, which aren't too tricky look very difficult here. There's not one circuit or application to a real electronic component to sweeten the pill for engineers, and some block diagrams are too crude. But it's a very modern tome, with ADSL and spread-spectrum techniques included. With an eye to DSP, the physical limits on performance are described. There's very little to do with "systems" here. A better name would be "Mathematical theories of channel processes and modulation techniques", but that wouldn't be focused.
