About this book


This book addresses the application of chaos in communication systems. An emerging discipline, chaos-based communication has been an important research topic in the past two decades. This book focuses on important aspects of the system operation, analysis, and performance evaluation of selected chaos-based communication systems, e.g., chaos-shift-keying (CSK) and differential CSK (DCSK) systems. The book is written for graduate level readership.

The main emphases are analysis techniques and performance evaluations. Chaos-based communication systems are spread-spectrum systems, and hence should provide multiple access and are expected to possess anti-jamming capabilities. The performance of the chaos-based digital communication systems under multi-user environments is studied in detail. This book provides thorough evaluations of the anti-jamming capabilities of chaos-based digital communication systems under single-tone jammers and pulsed-noise jammers. A detailed analysis of the extent of mutual interference in the likely practical event that chaos-based systems and conventional systems operate in shared frequency bands is also given. Furthermore, some selected research topics are discussed, e.g., detection methods, multiple access techniques, etc.

Being research oriented, the book will find interest among researchers, professors, graduate students, technology developers, and R&D engineers in communications. In general, readers will benefit from the detailed exposition of analysis methods and the thorough evaluations of chaos-based systems. Specifically, researchers who are new to the field will quickly get acquainted with the necessary analytical techniques for studying chaos-based digital communication systems, while experienced researchers will find the many benchmark results useful for reference and further study.
