Spectrum sensing deals with several subjects, that range from statistical and probability theory to radio propagation and signal processing, with cognitive radio playing an important role to the evolution and dissemination of new applications in the area.

The objective of this book is to connect the basic statistical formulation, the fundamental concepts from signal detection and spectrum sensing, cognitive radio and dynamic spectrum access, leading to an interesting, robust, and illustrative content, with recent practical applications of cognitive radio and spectrum sensing.

These student leaders are especially influential at creating a social community for first-year students. However, many student leaders in these important roles are not provided with the necessary training to develop, lead, and maintain a connected and cohesive peer group.
