Information and Coding Theory

This is a module for those majoring in communications, particularly digital communications. The first aim is to provide a rigorous treatment of Shannon’s source coding and channel coding theorems, results which provide the fundamental limits of digital communications. The second aim is to provide state-of-the-art coding techniques such as Turbo and low density parity check codes, which enable the fundamental limits to be approached. This module will bring the student to the cutting edge of current research in information and coding theory.
