## Intendierte Lernergebnisse

Vermittlung von Basiswissen über informationstheoretische Methoden und deren Anwendung in digitalen Übertragungssystemen.

## 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

## Literatur

lecture notes; broad literature (incl. textbooks) on information theory; e. g.

Thomas, Cover : Elements of Information Theory, 2. Edition, 2006
