This book presents the most recent state of the art in mobile positioning and tracking techniques.
This book discusses mobile positioning solutions applied on top of current wireless communication networks. In addition, the authors introduce advanced and novel topics such as localization in heterogeneous and cooperative networks, providing a unified treatment of the topic for researchers and industry professionals alike. Furthermore, the book focuses on application areas of positioning, basics of wireless communications for positioning, data fusion and filtering techniques, fundamentals of tracking, error mitigation techniques, positioning systems and technologies, and cooperative mobile positioning systems.
Covers the state of the art of satellite- and terrestrial-based positioning systems, spanning from outdoor to indoor environments and from wide area networks to short-range networks
Discusses a whole range of topics related to mobile positioning: from fundamentals of positioning to the description of a wide spectrum of mobility models for tracking, from details on data fusion and filtering techniques to error mitigation techniques (including aspects of signal processing)
Provides a solid bridge between research and industry envisaging a potential implementation of the presented solutions
Fills the gap between positioning and communication systems, showing how features of communication systems can be used for positioning purposes and how the retrieved location information can be used to enhance the performance of wireless networks.
Includes an accompanying website

The Dual of L(X,L), Finitely Additive Measures and Weak Convergence: A Primer (SpringerBriefs in Mathematics)
In measure theory, a familiar representation theorem due to F. Riesz identifies the dual space Lp(X,L,λ)* with Lq(X,L,λ), where 1/p+1/q=1, as long as 1 ≤ p<∞. However, L∞(X,L,λ)* cannot be similarly described, and is instead represented as a...
