Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 678)


This chapter introduces the basic modeling used for the study of crosstalk in WDM systems. We start by presenting the model for photodetection. Further we introduce the receiver model and the model for optical crosstalk.
