About the Author

About the Editors Sergio Verdu is professor of electrical engineering at Princeton University. He has served as associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, and has served as president of the IEEE Information Theory Society. Dr. Verdu has also received the National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award, the IEEE Donald G. Fink Prize Paper Award, and a Golden Jubilee Paper Award from the Information Theory Society. He is the author of Multiuser Detection (Cambridge University Press, 1998), and his research interests include information theory and multiuser communication.
Steven W. McLaughlin is associate professor in the School of ECE at Georgia Institute of Technology. From 1995 to 1999, Dr. McLaughlin served as the publications editor of the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory. He holds 16 U.S. patents in modulation codes for magnetic and optical recording, and his research interests include coding for constrained channels, signal processing, coding for high-density magnetic and optical recording channels, and turbo codes. In 1997 he received both the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers and the National Science Foundation Career Award.
