Information, Coding and Mathematics is a classic reference for both professional and academic researchers working in error-correction coding and decoding, Shannon theory, cryptography, digital communications, information security, and electronic engineering.
The work represents a collection of contributions from leading experts in turbo coding, cryptography and sequences, Shannon theory and coding bounds, and decoding theory and applications. All of the contributors have individually and collectively dedicated their work as a tribute to the outstanding work of Robert J. McEliece.
Information, Coding and Mathematics covers the latest advances in the widely used and rapidly developing field of information and communication technology.

From The Critics
Containing 21 papers from the May 2002 workshop, this volume presents contributions to information theory that claim influence from the work of Robert McEliece (electrical engineering, California Institute of Technology). Topics covered include a computational theory of surprise, worst-case mutual information trajectories in concatenated codes with asymptomatic interleavers, asymmetric error detection with feedback, reducible rank codes and applications to cryptography, coding for slow -frequency-hop transmission, recursive list decoding for Reed-Muller codes and their sub codes, and adaptive soft-decision decoding in two dimensions.
