Abstract:

The report summarizes the results of a theoretical and experimental study of the relative strengths and weaknesses of amplitude shift keying, phase shift keying and quadriphase shift keying systems. The report is a combination review report and research monograph. Ideal theoretical results are discussed, and methods of practical realization are described. New research results include the determination of the standard deviation of the arrival time as a function of modulation, simple formulas for the degradation in both digital and analog systems due to adjacent-channel interference, and simple upper bounds for intersymbol interferences. The use of the formulas are all examined experimentally.
