About this book
Information Theory and Network Coding consists of two parts: Components of Information Theory, and Fundamentals of Network Coding Theory. Part I is a rigorous treatment of information theory for discrete and continuous systems. In addition to the classical topics, there are such modern topics as the I-Measure, Shannon-type and non-Shannon-type information inequalities, and a fundamental relation between entropy and group theory. With information theory as the foundation, Part II is a comprehensive treatment of network coding theory with detailed discussions on linear network codes, convolutional network codes, and multi-source network coding.
Other important features include:
- Derivations that are from the first principle
- A large number of examples throughout the book
- Many original exercise problems
- Easy-to-use chapter summaries
- Two parts that can be used separately or together for a comprehensive course
Information Theory and Network Coding is for senior undergraduate and graduate students in electrical engineering, computer science, and applied mathematics. This work can also be used as a reference for professional engineers in the area of communications.
