### Capacity achieving codes for BPSK at low SNR

I don't know a lot about comm system design. I have an AWGN channel and low SNR (-3dB). Bandwidth is constrained to some maximum, B. I would like to know good choices of modulation and coding to ...

### Why are some Shannon's limit plots exponential rather than logarithmic?

This diagram again. This is clearly not the shape of $\log_2(1+SNR)$ but I very frequently see this instead of this: But this is also a stupid diagram because it doesn't cross at the origin. Also why ...

### Current fluctuations with reduced capacity

I simulate a neuron by compartments, where each compartment is represented by an electrical circuit. Myelinated nerves have reduced capacitance - so for example, if $n$ denotes the membrane layers, ...

### interpretation of simulation results : capacity with precoder

I am studying the concept of computation the capacity. I have early asked about the difference between CSI unknown/ known to transmitter here. In the book about Matlab implementation OFDM system, the ...
Please can someone verify these basic results about error correcting codes. For this example I am using Reed-Solomon because there are functions to calculate the rate $r$ and distance $d$ of the code,...
In a MIMO system, if the receiver has perfect CSI, i.e. knows that channel matrix $\boldsymbol{H}$, then the achievable rate is:  R = \log \left|\boldsymbol{I}+\frac{P}{N_RN_T}\boldsymbol{H}\...
