NOC: An Introduction to Information Theory

Banerjee, A. (Adrish)


Information Theory answers two fundamental questions: what is the maximum data rate at which we can transmit over a communication link, and what is the fundamental limit of data compression. In this course we will explore answers to these two questions. We will study some practice source compression algorithms. We will also study how to compute channel capacity of simple channels.
