By providing a comprehensive collection of contributions on the history and current state of the art in this rapidly emerging field, this book gives you a complete survey of the theory, applications, and mathematics of cyclo-stationarity. It brings together the latest work in the field by the foremost experts and presents it in a tutorial fashion. From this book, you will learn new concepts, methods, and algorithms for performing signal processing tasks and designing and analyzing communications systems. Cyclostationarity in Communications and Signal Processing features both broad chapters and more narrowly focused articles that provide in-depth surveys reviewing the newest developments in specific areas. The tutorial style, coupled with the comprehensive reference lists that are provided, make this book instrumental in furthering progress in understanding and using cyclostationarity in all fields where it arises.
Dr. Nelson Blachman, well known communication systems author, writes:
My interest in Dr. Gardner's research is concerned with the advances in cyclostationary signal processing that has been his greatest contribution to electrical engineering research. In fact, Professor Gardner is "Mr. Cyclostationary", the promoter and leading international researcher in this important signal processing area, with two textbooks, numerous papers, and a federal government subsidized workshop to his credit. As a scientist involved with Department of Defense signal processing research aimed at threat analysis of signals related to national security interests, I can indicate to you that Dr. Gardner's work has had profound impact on the analysis of these signals, but classification of the analysis has kept the importance of his work from being known to the general public and others in academia. There is another attribute of Dr. Gardner's research and tutorial material that makes him stand out among so many of my other academic colleagues, and that is his depth of research (especially historical and mathematical detail) and his attention to precision and detail in his writings. I have always found it difficult to find errors and to take issue with any of Professor Gardner's papers because he has meticulously done his research; this is in contrast to so many other academics who tend to be more sloppy in their mathematical precision and who do not always thoroughly check the technical literature in depth. I believe this high degree of professional research has contributed greatly to the widespread acceptance of Dr. Gardner's technical writings as being the preeminent authority on cyclostationary signal processes and their exploitation.

Around the turn of the century, now 15 years ago, the recognition in a variety of fields of study of the utility of the theory of cyclostationary time-series began growing at an accelerating pace. A comprehensive literature survey was published in 2006 (see Tutorial Publications herein), and a major extension and generalization of the theory that accommodates the effects of rapid motion between radio-frequency transmitters and receivers appeared in the 2012 book Generalizations of cyclostationary signal processing: spectral analysis and applications [ISBN: 978-1-119-97335-5] (written by a close friend and colleague, Professor Antonio Napolitano). Numerous research publications in the professional journals of various fields of science and engineering have appeared during this recent period.
The overview paper by W. A. Gardner, A. Napolitano, and L. Paura, "Cyclostationarity: Half a Century of Research," Signal Processing, April 2006, received from the Publisher (Elsevier) the "Most Cited Paper Award" in 2008; and, each year since its first appearance online up through 2011, it was the most cited paper among those published in Signal Processing in the previous five years, and among the top 10 most downloaded papers from Signal Processing. As shown below, Google Scholar reports that, as of late 2014, this paper has been cited over 400 times.
The most frequently cited paper on cyclostationarity, as of late 2014, is an IEEE Signal Processing Magazine article with 861 citations, and the next three most cited publications are his three books, with 728, 691, 591 citations, out of a total 9529 citations, 3707 of which were during the 5 year period since 2009.
Professor Lewis E. Franks, previous NSF program director and previous chairman of the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, states:
I believe I have read a major portion of Gardner's papers and textbooks. I feel that a unique feature of all these publications, compared to other engineering documents of a similar nature, is the presence of a strong scholarly style. Previous contributions to the topic are meticulously sought out and referenced. It's not just a matter of being polite to colleagues or avoiding confrontations over omitted citations; but a genuine attempt to establish an important historical context for new results or interpretations. The relevance of prior contributions to the topic is carefully laid out and unified... On the topic of cyclostationary processes, I feel that he has, almost single-handedly, developed the theoretical and applied engineering aspects of the topic to the point of today's widespread recognition of its utility.
