Theory and Practical Design of Phase-locked Receivers, Volume IThis is Volume I of a two-volume work on the theory, of phase-locked receivers, with pertinent reference material on practical receiver design. Volume I is primarily devoted to the performance of carrier-tracking loops, including a rigorous treatment of narrow-band systems having IF limiters. The bulk of the work is based on a theoretical linear model, but a nonlinear method is also presented to predict behavior near the threshold. The emphasis throughout the work is toward completeness, simplicity, and internal consistency of the material assembled.

Part I of this Volume is an exposition of the theory, the resulting equations, and the design philosophy that have enabled the phase-lock concept to evolve into the basic principle underlying the most sensitive receivers il, the world today. Part II is a condensed version of Part I, intended as a quick reference to formulas, definitions, and salient design considerations.
