Overview

This highly readable text provides a clear exposition of the implications and interpretations of the fundamentals of discrete information theory and coding. Focusing on the results of practical applications, the authors cover information measures, Shannon's channel capacity/coding theorems, and source and channel coding concepts. The clear, accessible text will serve as an introduction to the field for professionals and students in communication systems, computer science, and electrical systems science.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A text for a one-semester introductory course limited in scope to discrete information theory and a general discussion of coding theory without detailed treatment of algorithms for encoding and decoding for various specific code classes. It offers an unusually thorough treatment of noiseless self-synchronizing codes, and features the use of Secret Agent 00111, a recurring character who provides a concrete context for abstract theories. The prerequisites are basic calculus and the elementary concepts of discrete probability theory. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR booknews.com
