This book was written to cover the lack of text intended for engineering and graduate school student aspiring to specialize in the mobile communications field. As it aims to most benefit the engineering student, it explains the basic technologies supporting the mobile communication system systematically and simply. Easy-to-understand manner is adopted instead of focusing on the system as a whole. Another characteristic of the book is that it concentrates on addressing subjects that will remain important in the field even after 10 years. Mobile communication technologies are evolving very rapidly. While the book avoids discussion of subjects soon to be out-of-date, it does not fail to include specific leading-edge technologies. Thus communications specialists as well as students should find this book valuable as a information source.
