This book will introduce the concept of molecular communications and nanetworks. The publication addresses why nascale communication is needed for the sophisticated na and biotechlogy applications. The text introduces the frontier applications of the molecular communication and nanetworks. The book examines the molecular communication types called active, passive, and gap junction molecular communications. The author presents the molecular transmitter, receiver, encoding and decoding mechanisms used in these systems. Discussing the molecular communication system model and looking at the unique characteristics of practical molecular communication systems and these chemical reactions and their effects on the communication performance. Finally, the book examines the point-to-point, broadcast, and multiple-access molecular channel and shows two promising application examples of the nanetworks. The first application example is the body area nanetworks used in namedicine. the second nanetwork application example, i.e., NaSensor Networks (NSNs) with Molecular Communication.
