Computer Information Theory

A Student's Guide to Coding and Information Theory by Stefan M. Moser,Po-Ning Chen

By Stefan M. Moser,Po-Ning Chen

This easy-to-read consultant presents a concise advent to the engineering heritage of contemporary communique platforms, from cellphones to information compression and garage. heritage arithmetic and particular engineering options are saved to a minimal in order that just a easy wisdom of high-school arithmetic is required to appreciate the fabric lined. The authors start with many functional purposes in coding, together with the repetition code, the Hamming code and the Huffman code. They then clarify the corresponding details concept, from entropy and mutual details to channel skill and the data transmission theorem. ultimately, they supply insights into the connections among coding concept and different fields. Many labored examples are given during the e-book, utilizing functional purposes to demonstrate theoretical definitions. workouts also are incorporated, permitting readers to double-check what they've got discovered and achieve glimpses into extra complex issues, making this ideal for someone who wishes a short creation to the subject.
