This book discusses state-of-the-art computational algorithms for waveform design in active sensing systems. Waveforms are designed to achieve certain desired properties, which are divided into three categories (corresponding to the three major parts in the book), namely good aperiodic correlations, good periodic correlations and beampattern matching. Various application examples of using the newly designed waveforms are provided, including radar imaging, channel estimation, an ultrasound system for medical treatment and covert underwater communications. Besides numerical results, theoretical analysis is presented, whenever available, that describes performance lower bounds or limitations.

Discussions in the book lean toward formulating practical problems mathematically and solving the mathematical problems using optimization techniques. Particular attention is paid to making the developed algorithms computationally efficient. Most algorithms are presented with a table that lists the iteration steps clearly.

Matlab Code

Start from main.m in each chapter. Each main.m file is divided into cell groups (delimited by %%) that correspond to individual examples in the book. Some examples can take a long time to execute; in such cases precomputed data are provided in the mat format.
