An ideal first textbook on communication systems in electrical engineering, Modern Digital and Analog Communication Systems 4th edition (PDF) from the series The Oxford Series in Electrical and Computer Engineering is one of the best resource on the subject. Retaining the superb pedagogical style of the first 3 editions, the authors first introduce the fundamentals of systems and signals and core communication topics; they then present the tools essential to the analysis and design of digital communications. Featuring a seamless blend of heuristics and mathematics, carefully crafted examples to clarify mathematical abstractions, and updated and brand new MATLAB exercises, this textbook provides thorough coverage of modern communication system theory and application that is easily accessible to students.

Modern Digital and Analog Communication Systems 4e is suitable for college or university students without or with prior knowledge of probability theory. Only after laying a solid foundation in how communication systems work do the authors delve into analyses of communication systems that require probability theory and random processes. Expanded, revised, and updated throughout, the fourth edition reflects the many technological advances in the field, such as CDMA and OFDM, pervasive communication applications such as wireless LAN systems, cellular systems and DSL modem technology services.


  • Accessible to all students with no background in probability theory
  • Abundant real-world examples that are applicable to students’ everyday lives
  • Gives intuitive insights–rather than just proofs–wherever possible, as well as heuristic explanations of theoretical results
  • Flexible organization (outlined in the preface) that accommodates a variety of course structures, including 1-semester, 2-semester, 1-quarter, and 2-quarter
