ISR alum Gubner author of new book on probability and random processes


Dr. John A. Gubner, a 1988 Ph.D. alumnus in electrical engineering and associate professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is the author of a new academic textbook, titled "Probability and Random Processes for Electrical and Computer Engineers," published by Cambridge University Press

The book cites probability as a powerful tool that helps electrical and computer engineers to explain, model, analyze, and design the technology they develop. The text begins at the advanced undergraduate level, and progresses through more complex topics mastered at the graduate level.

Gubner was advised by Professor Prakash Narayan (ECE/ISR) during his M.S. and Ph.D. study at the University of Maryland and was an active part of ISR. Gubner's current research interests include ultra-wideband communications, point processes and shot noise, subspace methods in statistical processing, and information theory.
