For most of this time I made use of anonymous functions, but I have to admit without really knowing what I was doing. I just copy-paste-modified the examples in the fzero and quad documentation and hoped they would somehow work. Which, […]

As a (late) Christmas present I thought I’d share my method of determining the required OSNR (ROSNR) value for a transmission system in simulations by means of the Monte Carlo method. Recently, I do prefer the error vector magnitude (EVM) as a figure of merit, but not a lot of people share this view. Many […]
