Chapter 10. Monte Carlo Simulation of Communication Systems

This chapter extends the basic material on Monte Carlo (MC) techniques explored in the preceding chapter. In Section 10.1 we consider two example simulations of communications systems. The first of these systems, a phase-shift key (PSK) digital communications system, although very simple, serves as a building block for simulations developed later in this book. This is followed by a more complicated simulation of a differential QPSK system in which the effects of phase and symbol synchronization errors are considered. In Section 10.2 we turn our attention to the semianalytic (SA) technique, which combines MC simulation and analysis.

The two methodologies explored in this chapter are quite ...
