Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review


The error probability for fully differential 16-APSK in a Rayleigh fading channel has been evaluated theoretically and through the use of extensive computer simulation. The optimum ring ratio and detection thresholds have been determined and the results indicate that 16-APSK can be considered as a potential candidate for spectrally efficient digital transmission over practical mobile fading channels
