Official Course Description:
Information theory serves as the most important foundation for communication systems. Therefore, an analytical framework for modeling and evaluating point-to-point communication is developed. The key concept of information content of a signal source and information capacity of a transmission medium are precisely defined, and their relationship to data compression algorithms and error control codes is examined in detail. The course aims to install an appreciation for the fundamental capabilities and limitations of information transmission schemes and to provide the mathematical tools for applying these ideas to a broad class of communications systems.
