Discrete stochastic processes by
Robert G Gallager(
Book
)
16 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Stochastic processes are found in probabilistic systems that evolve with time. Discrete stochastic processes change by only integer time steps (for some time scale), or are characterized by discrete occurrences at arbitrary times. Discrete Stochastic Processes helps the reader develop the understanding and intuition necessary to apply stochastic process theory in engineering, science and operations research. The book approaches the subject via many simple examples which build insight into the structure of stochastic processes and the general effect of these phenomena in real systems. The book presents mathematical ideas without recourse to measure theory, using only minimal mathematical analysis. In the proofs and explanations, clarity is favored over formal rigor, and simplicity over generality. Numerous examples are given to show how results fail to hold when all the conditions are not satisfied. Audience: An excellent textbook for a graduate level course in engineering and operations research. Also an invaluable reference for all those requiring a deeper understanding of the subject

Principles of digital communication by
Robert G Gallager(
Book
)
19 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The renowned communication theorist Robert Gallager brings his lucid writing style to this firstyear graduate textbook on the fundamental system aspects of digital communication. He develops a simple framework and then combines this with careful proofs to help the reader understand modern systems and simplified models in an intuitive yet precise way. Although many features of various modern digital communication systems are discussed, the focus is always on principles explained using a hierarchy of simple models." "Throughout, principles are developed with both mathematical precision and intuitive explanations, allowing readers to choose their own mix of mathematics and engineering. An extensive set of exercises ranges from confidencebuilding examples to more challenging problems."Jacket

A perspective on multiaccess channels by
Robert G Gallager(
Book
)
5 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Information Theoretic Approach and the Collision Resolution Approach to Multiaccess Channels are reviewed in terms of the Underlying Communication Problems that both are modelling. The author gives some perspective on the strengths and weakness of these approaches and argues for the need of a more combined approach focused on coding and decoding techniques. (Author)

Sequential decoding for binary channels with noise and synchronization errors by
Robert G Gallager(
Book
)
3 editions published between 1961 and 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Consider a channel for which the input is a sequence of binary digits and for which the output is the same sequence with each digit independ ently modified in the following way: with probability Pe, the digit is changed; with probability Pd, the digit is deleted from the sequence; and with probability Pi, the digit is replaced by two randomly chosen digits. The channel output gives no indication which digits were deleted or inserted. It is shown that convolutional coding and sequential decoding can be applied, with minor modifications, to this channel and bounds are derived on computation and error probability analogous to the bounds for the Binary Symmetric Channel. More precisely, a computational cutoff rate is defined. For code rates less than Rcomp bits per digit, the average decoding computation in the incorrect subset grows more slowly than linearly with the coding constraint length, and the probability of decoding error decreases exponentially with constraint length. For Pd=Pi=0, the above expression for Rcomp reduces to that derived by Wozencraft and Reiffen for the Binary Symmetric Channel. (Author)

Second derivative algorithms for minimum delay distributed routing in networks by
Dimitri P Bertsekas(
Book
)
3 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We propose a class of algorithms for finding an optimal quasistatic routing in a communication network. The algorithms are based on Gallager's method. Their main feature is that they utilize second derivatives of the objective function and may be viewed as approximations to a constrained version of Newton's method. The use of second derivatives results in improved speed of convergence and automatic stepsize scaling with respect to level of traffic input. These advantages are of crucial importance for the practical implementation of the algorithm using distributed computation

Codedmodulation techniques for fading channels by
S. Hamidreza Jamali(
)
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
CodedModulation Techniques for Fading Channels provides the reader with a sound background for the application of bandwidthefficient codedmodulation techniques in fading channels. The book systematically presents recent developments in the field, which has grown rapidly in recent years, and provides a solid frame of reference for further research in this area. During the past decade there has been a proliferation of research in the area of bandwidthefficient codedmodulation techniques. The primary advantage of these schemes over modulation schemes employing traditional error correcting codes is their ability to improve the performance of the communication system without bandwidth expansion. This property makes them a suitable choice for channels which are limited in both power and bandwidth. A typical example of such channels is a mobile satellite channel, where it is desired to accommodate a large number of users in a given bandwidth with a power which is constrained by the physical size of the satellite and by the vehicle's antenna. CodedModulation Techniques for Fading Channels is an excellent reference for researchers and practicing engineers, and may be used as a text for advanced courses on the subject

Introduction to convolutional codes with applications by
Ajay Dholakia(
)
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introduction to Convolutional Codes with Applications is an introduction to the basic concepts of convolutional codes, their structure and classification, various error correction and decoding techniques for convolutionally encoded data, and some of the most common applications. The definition and representations, distance properties, and important classes of convolutional codes are also discussed in detail. The book provides the first comprehensive description of tabledriven correction and decoding of convolutionally encoded data. Complete examples of Viterbi, sequential, and majoritylogic decoding technique are also included, allowing a quick comparison among the different decoding approaches. Introduction to Convolutional Codes with Applications summarizes the research of the last two decades on applications of convolutional codes in hybrid ARQ protocols. A new classification allows a natural way of studying the underlying concepts of hybrid schemes and accommodates all of the new research. A novel application of fast decodable invertible convolutional codes for lost packet recovery in high speed networks is described. This opens the door for using convolutional coding for error recovery in high speed networks. Practicing communications, electronics, and networking engineers who want to get a better grasp of the underlying concepts of convolutional coding and its applications will greatly benefit by the simple and concise style of explanation. An uptodate bibliography of over 300 papers is included. Also suitable for use as a textbook or a reference text in an advanced course on coding theory with emphasis on convolutional codes
