In this chapter, a digital communication system with coding is first described. Second, various wireless communication channels, their probability density functions, and capacities are discussed. Further, Shannon’s noisy channel coding theorem, channel coding principle, and channel coding gain are explained. Finally, some application examples of channel coding are included.
