B-4     A. F. Molisch, Wireless Communications”, 2nd edition, 825 pages, IEEE Press – Wiley (2011); 1st edition, IEEE Press – Wiley (2005); translation into Chinese, PHEI (2008).


A textbook on wireless for advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as practicing engineers and researchers. It provides a complete overview of the physical layer of wireless communications, including channels and propagation, transceivers (modulation, coding, multiple access), and a description of standardized systems. A second edition appeared in early 2011.

        This edited book provides an overview of all aspects of ultrawideband communications, including propagation channels, system design, international standardization and frequency regulation.





B-2     A. F. Molisch (ed.), "Wireless wideband digital communications", 547+xvi pages, Prentice-Hall (2000); translation into Chinese, PHEI (2002).


          An (edited) research monograph that describes the effects of using wide bandwidths on the wireless transmission of data. Both the negative (error floor) and positive (enhanced diversity) effects are pointed out. All common wideband methods, including single-carrier transmission with and without equalizers, CDMA, and OFDM, are discussed.




B-1     A.F. Molisch and B.P. Oehry, "Radiation trapping in atomic vapors", 510+xxvi pages, Oxford University Press,  Oxford, U.K. (1998).


           A comprehensive description of the area of radiation trapping, where resonance radiation created by one atom might be absorbed and reemitted by another atom, and this process might be repeated multiple times. Though the topic has been studied in the literature for many years, this book is the first comprehensive and self-consistent description of the field.
