ECSE 620 Information Theory and Coding (4 credits)

Offered by: Electrical & Computer Engr (Faculty of Engineering)

Administered by: Graduate Studies

Overview

Electrical Engineering : Point-to-point communications: source and channel models, lossless source coding (prefix codes, Ziv-Lempel algorithm), performance limits for channel codes, source coding subject to a fidelity criterion, end-to-end performance limits. Approaching the limits: convolutional codes, linear codes. The multi-access problem: achievable rate regions, TDMA, CDMA. Secure communications.
