Course Information

Learning Outcome

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

Course overview

  • Basic definitions: information, entropy, mutual information;
  • Coding for data compression: source coding theorem;
  • Lossless compressing codes: Huffman-, Tunstall-, Lempel-Ziv-codes, entropy and coding for sources with memory.
  • Channel coding for reliable communications over noisy channels
  • Information theory for continuous random variables: differential entropy, capacity of channels with white and colourd noise, bandlimited contiuous-time channels
  • tradeoff between power and bandwidth efficiency.
  • Introduction to Rate-Distortion-Theory
