LV-Beschreibung

Intendierte Lernergebnisse

The students acquire fundamental insights into information theoretical methods and their application to the assessment and optimization of digital transmission systems.

Lehrmethodik inkl. Einsatz von eLearning-Tools

Videos of the lectures for Home Schooling are available in English andGerman language (in German via University of Erlangen)

Tutorials: one day meeting on a Saturday in June in a lecture hall, if possible, otherwise as live BBB meeting


Inhalt/e

  • Basic definitions: information, entropy, mutual information; entropy for sources with memory.
  • Coding for data compression: source coding theorem;
  • Lossless data compressing codes: Huffman-, Tunstall-, Lempel-Ziv-codes, coding for sources with memory.
  • Description of noisy communication channels by methods of Information Theory
  • Principles of channel coding for reliable communications over noisy channels
  • Information theory for continuous random variables: differential entropy, capacity of channels with white and colored noise, bandlimited continuous-time channels
  • tradeoff between power and bandwidth efficiency.
  • Introduction to Multi-User Information Theory
