EE 775 Selected Topics in Information Theory and Coding

Current topics in information theory and coding. Typical topics include: basic theorems of information theory, entropy, channel capacity, and error bounds. Rate distortion theory: discrete source with a fidelity criterion, minimum distortion quantization, bounds on rate-distortion functions, error control codes: review of prerequisite linear algebra and field theory, linear block codes, cyclic algebraic codes, convolutional codes, and sequential decoding.
