Overview

Introduces the principles and mathematics of information theory Emphasizes how a code is designed and strategies for selecting codes for specific applications Includes proofs and worked examples explaining all concepts, formulations, and design methodologies Offers basic and advanced exercises in each chapter Explores advanced topics such as PPM compression and turbo codes In a clear, concise, and modular format, this book introduces the fundamental concepts and mathematics of information and coding theory. The authors emphasize how a code is designed and discuss the main properties and characteristics of different coding algorithms along with strategies for selecting the appropriate codes to meet specific requirements. They provide comprehensive coverage of source and channel coding, address arithmetic, BCH, and Reed-Solomon codes and explore some more advanced topics such as PPM compression and turbo codes. Worked examples and sets of basic and advanced exercises in each chapter reinforce the text's clear explanations of all concepts and methodologies.
