Digital Communication Principles: Databases

This course will introduce and cover the principles and fundamentals of digital communication system design in Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) channel. We will study techniques that allow us to describe deterministic signaling sets and random signals

Searching Tips

Journals are collections of articles that are published on a regular basis to report current research within a discipline. Use keywords, phrases, titles or authors or use Boolean operators (AND, OR, or, NOT) to construct a more complex query. Refine using these filters to narrow or expand your results most related to your topic. Keywords:  Engineering, Science, Tachnology etc.

Search Articles

Once you have identified your topic, check to see if it is too specific, if it is, work toward a general focus. This will help you generate a list of keywords or concepts related to your topic. Use our Web Discovery service to search articles from databases subscribed by the LUMS Library. Keywords: Engineering, CS, Physics etc.
