Wireless-Powered Communication Networks will be published in January

This January, Cambridge University Press will be releasing, Wireless-Powered Communication Networks: Architectures, protocols, and applications. UBC’s Vijay Bhargava co-edited this essential text for researchers in the field along with Vahid Tarokh, Harvard University; Massachusetts; Dusit Niyato, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore; Ekram Hossain, University of Manitoba, Canada; Dong In Kim, Sungkyunkwan University, Korea and; Lotfollah Shafai, University of Manitoba, Canada. This is the first book to provide a unified view of energy harvesting and wireless power transfer networks from a communications perspective.

“This is a brilliant piece of work which provides a holistic view of the emerging energy harvesting-based wireless communications and networking technology. Starting with the basics … the book cohesively covers different aspects of this technology, including circuit and antenna design issues for wireless energy harvesting devices and performance modeling and analysis of wireless energy harvesting and transfer-based wireless networks, as well as applications of this technology in different wireless networking scenarios. Standardization activities on wireless energy harvesting and transfer are also discussed. As a valuable addition to the library of graduate students, researchers and practitioners working in this area, this book will equip them for further reading and research on this exciting technology.”
