NED UniversityArif Munif

This is meant to be a basic introductory course in Digital Communications. It will cover core concepts, ranging from representation of signals to optimum receiver design for AWGN channels. It will provide students an over all feeling of communication systems and will also familiarize them with the practical cellular systems that are deployed in today's world markets. 
This course will try to keep mathematics to a minimum without compromising on the essentials. It will step through a practical solution that students can see working [Matlab simulations]. 
Finally it will briefly touch upon some of the advanced topics in Digital Communications Systems and provide directions to those who want to explore more themselves. 

- Probability, Random variables, and Stochastic Processes 
- Linear Algebra (Matrix Properties and Manipulation) 
- Signals and Systems (Third Year Course in NED)
