The course aims to present the principles of current wireless communication systems, with a rigorous approach and attention to an operational knowledge.

Channel models. Channel capacity. Diversity techniques. Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. OFDM modulation (Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing). Adaptive modulation and coding. Outline of orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) and code division multiple access (CDMA).

Laboratory activities
Classroom excercises are based on problems assigned in advance, complemented by homework assignments.

Examination methods
Evaluation comprehensively based on:
* Level of active and regular participation to lectures and classroom exercises
* periodically assigned homeworks
* final exam including a written and an oral test.

Remedial sessions - evaluation based on written examination and oral examination.

Typical knowledge of a graduate of the Class of Information Engineering are required (first level degree).
