Summary

The mathematical principles of communication that govern the compression and transmission of data and the design of efficient methods of doing so.

Content

1. Mathematical definition of information and the study of its properties.
2. Source coding: efficient representation of message sources.
3. Communication channels and their capacity.
4. Coding for reliable communication over noisy channels.
5. Multi-user communications: multi access and broadcast channels.
6. Lossy source coding : approximate representation of message sources.
7. Information Theory and statistics

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

• Formulate the fundamenal concepts of information theory such as entropy, mutual information, channel capacity
• Elaborate the principles of source coding and data transmission
• Analyze source codes and channel codes
• Apply information theoretic methods to novel settings
