Performance of Digital Communication Over Fading Channels



In this chapter, bit error rate (BER) performance of some of digital modulation schemes and different wireless communication techniques is evaluated in additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) and fading channels. Further, the BER performance of different diversity techniques such as selective diversity, EGC, and MRC is also evaluated in Rayleigh fading channel.
