About the book

Massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) is one of the most promising technologies for the next generation of wireless communication networks because it has the potential to provide game-changing improvements in spectral efficiency and energy efficiency. This Book aims to clearly elucidate many research insights in a clear and self-contained way and provides the reader with the necessary knowledge and mathematical tools to carry out independent research in this area.
From the definition of Massive MIMO, the Book covers the important aspects of channel estimation, different efficiency parameters, and various practical deployment considerations. From the beginning, a very general, yet tractable, canonical system model with spatial channel correlation is required. This model is used to realistically assess the Spectral Efficiency and Energy Efficiency and is later extended to also include the impact of hardware impairments.

As an overall framework, the authors and researchers who are working in the Area of Massive MIMO and 5G are expected to submit chapters covering these areas to give insight into research about MIMO.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
