Information Channels

  • 1706 Accesses

Abstract

The information channels, as well as the sources, generally are discrete or continuous. Physical communication channel is, by its nature, a continuous one. Using such an approach the noise and other interferences (other signals, fading etc.) can be directly taken into account. However, it can be simplified introducing the notion of a discrete channel (Fig. 1.1), incorporating the signal generation (modulation), continuous channel and signal detection (demodulation).
