Review quote

'This book is an excellent summary of existing literature on green communications from a communications theorist point of view. It can be extremely valuable to researchers in this emerging area.' Vahid Tarokh, Harvard University '... an excellent snapshot of the state of green in wireless networking and ... a nice overview of who is doing what and where in the field.' Alfy Riddle, IEEE Microwave Magazine 'This is one of the first books related to the area of green wireless communication. It provides a good overview of different research works carried out independently by various groups.' Michal Wagrowski, IEEE Communications Magazine 'This book contains contributions from almost 60 scientists and engineers in academia and industry. Green Radio Communication Networks is an excellent snapshot of the state of green in wireless networking, and it is a nice overview of who is doing what and where in the field.' Microwave Magazine
