Hartford Professor Writes Book on Contemporary Communication Systems
Mohammed Farooque Mesiya, professor of practice, Department of Engineering and Science, Rensselaer at Hartford, has written a book, Contemporary Communication Systems, recently published by McGraw-Hill. The book provides a comprehensive introduction to modern analog and digital communication systems.
Semiconductor revolution (Moore’s law) and advances in software technologies continue to drive the rapid development of digital communication systems. In this context, the book includes a detailed coverage of the relevant topics in digital compression, multiplexing, and synchronization techniques.
According to Mesiya, “Communication systems form the infrastructure of today’s optical fiber, cellular, and satellite communication networks. Contemporary Communication Systems uses Simulink as a key pedagogical tool to develop appreciation of the fundamental concepts in the design and analysis of communication systems. The book engages students in the issues relevant to system and product design by integrating a discussion of the theoretical concepts with the extensive hands-on use of visual and simulation resources to reinforce learning.”
Mesiya’s areas of expertise include wireless communications and networks, optical fiber communication and networks, digital communications and signal processing, and broadband networks and architectures. He has published several books and numerous articles in refereed journals and conference papers.
