A Student’s Guide to Coding and Information Theory

Book Description

This easy-to-read guide provides a concise introduction to the engineering background of modern communication , from phones to and storage. Background and specific engineering techniques are kept to a minimum so that only a basic knowledge of high-school is needed to understand the material covered. The authors begin with many practical applications in coding, including the repetition , the Hamming and the Huffman . They then explain the corresponding theory, from entropy and mutual to channel capacity and the transmission theorem. Finally, they provide insights into the connections between coding theory and other fields. Many worked examples are given throughout the book, using practical applications to illustrate theoretical definitions. Exercises are also included, enabling readers to double-check what they have learned and gain glimpses into more advanced topics, making this perfect for anyone who needs a quick introduction to the subject.
