Single Link AWGN Channel :

Single Link AWGN Channel Model
where r(t) is the baseband received signal, b(t) is the information bearing signal, and n(t) is noise.
The signal b(t) is assumed to be band-limited to W.
The time period is assumed to be T.
The dimension of signal is N=2WT

Signal Dimensions :

Signal Dimensions A signal with bandwidth W sampled at the Nyquist rate.
W complex (independent) samples per second.
Each complex sample is one dimension or degree of freedom.
Signal of duration T and bandwidth W has 2WT real degrees of freedom and can be represented 2WT real dimensions

Signals in Time Domain :

Signals in Time Domain Sampled at Nyquist rate
