Handbook of Optical Through the Air Communications
by David A. Johnson
Publisher: Imagineering E-Zine 2008
Number of pages: 68
This handbook is an introduction to the basic concepts of optical communications for experimenters, engineers, and scientists. It discusses some of the physics of light and how light can be manipulated, modulated and transmitted to send information. It provides details of the components used in light transmitters and receivers, describes some signal processing techniques, and gives detailed information on building a long range optical transceiver.

Ultra-Wideband Radio (UWB) earmarks a new radio access philosophy and exploits several GHz of bandwidth. It promises high data rate communication over short distances as well as innovative radar sensing and localization applications.
by Claude Shannon
Shannon presents results previously found nowhere else, and today many professors refer to it as the best exposition on the subject of the mathematical limits on communication. It laid the modern foundations for what is now coined Information Theory.
This book covers a large number of topics in the field of electrical communications. It discusses topics of analog communication schemes, computer programming, network architectures, information infrastructures, communications circuit analysis, etc.
