9780139613272: Applied Coding and Information Theory for Engineers

This book provides a practical introduction to the theory and practice of coding and information theory for application in the field of electronic communications. It is written at an introductory level and assumes no prior background in coding or information theory. While the mathematical level is detailed, it is still introductory. Through a discussion that balances theory and practical applications and abandons the traditional "theorem-proof" format, this valuable book presents an overview of digital communication systems and the concept of information. It is written in a easy-to-follow conversational style that integrates practical engineering issues through formal and conceptual discussions of mathematical issues. It also makes extensive use of explicit examples that illustrate methods and theory throughout the book. For the professional, it provides an essential hands-on head start for real-world projects and situations. An essential reference for professional engineers in the field of electronic communications.
