- T. G. Thomas and S. Chandra Sekhar, Analog Communication, Tata McGraw Hill, India, 2007. This book is an adapted version of (1) above, tailor-made to suit the syllabus prescribed by the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU), Andhra Pradesh, India.
Prof. T.G. Thomas is Dean (Academics) and Professor at the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department, Birla Institute of Technology and Sciences (BITS) Pilani (Dubai Campus), United Arab Emirates. About the same time when Prof. Thomas was working on the book, I was actively pursuing amplitude/frequency-modulation models for representing speech/audio signals, as part of my Ph.D thesis at IISc. We then joined forces and I contributed to the signal processing aspects of the book.
Although there are many textbooks on the subject, most Indian undergraduate students find them somewhat difficult to handle. Also, many engineering colleges in India, particularly in the state of Andhra Pradesh, do not have adequately trained faculty. Our introductory book, dealing mainly with Analog Communication and some basic concepts of Digital Communication, is primarily intended to serve as self-study material at the sophomore level and is written in a tutorial style. An adapted version of the first book was released under the title Analog Communication
, in March 2007. It is tailor-made to suit the syllabus of the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU), Andhra Pradesh, India. It is prescribed as a reference book for the course. The book is also accompanied by a Solutions Manual made available online exclusively to the instructors.
: The two books are also recommended by popular GATE coaching academies.
