This book offers comprehensive coverage of the basic mathematical tools for the engineer in the field of communication technologies – generation, processing and transport of all forms of information, data and images. It provides the essential results in probability theory and statistics, which constitute the basis for the presentation of signal processing, information theory, traffic and queueing theory and reliability. The mathematical bases of simulation are also covered.
The book’s accessible style will enable students, engineers and researchers new to the area to advance their knowledge of communication technologies; however, it will also serve as a useful reference guide to anyone wishing to further explore this field.
