COM-302

Lecturer(s) :

Telatar Emre

Language:

English

Summary

This course is on the foundations of digital communication. The focus is on the transmission problem (rather than being on source coding).

Content

Optimal receiver for vector channels
Optimal receiver for waveform (AWGN) channels
Various signaling schemes and their performance
Efficient signaling via finite-state machines
Efficient decoding via Viterbi algorithm
Communicating over bandlimited AWGN channels
Nyquist Criterion
Communicating over passband AWGN channels

Keywords

Detection, estimation, hypothesis testing, Nyquist, bandwidth, error probability, coding, decoding, baseband, passband, AM, QAM, PSK.
