Dr. P. Mohana Shankar Publishes “Fading and Shadowing in Wireless Systems”

January 4, 2012

Dr. Shankar

Drexel’s Dr. P. Mohana Shankar, Allen Rothwarf Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has recently published his book “Fading and Shadowing in Wireless Systems.” The book addresses the need for more information to comprehend wireless channel characteristics. 

Shankar’s book presents a comprehensive view of wireless channel degradation arising from fading and shadowing.  The text utilizes a variety of statistical models, and provides relevant background information to facilitate easy understanding of the models and analysis. With more than a 1,000 equations and 350 Matlab generated figures and tables, it is a source of information that will be used by students, educators, researchers and professionals in wireless communications, allowing access to information currently unavailable.

Shankar received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in physics from Kerala University in India, an additional master’s degree in applied optics at the Indian Institute of Technology and a doctoral degree in electrical engineering. The book was a result of Shankar’s studies and research during a two-quarter sabbatical (September 2009 - March 2010) granted by Drexel University. Shankar has been at Drexel since 1982.
