Abstract

Many physical communication channels, such as radio channels, accept a continuous-time waveform as input. Consequently, a sequence of source bits, representing data or a digitized analog signal, must be converted to a continuous-time waveform at the transmitter. In general, each successive group of bits taken from this sequence is mapped to a particular continuous-time pulse. In this chapter, we discuss the basic principles involved in selecting such a pulse for channels that can be characterized as linear and time invariant with finite bandwidth.
