By Stefan M. Moser,Po-Ning Chen

This easy-to-read consultant presents a concise creation to the engineering historical past of contemporary verbal exchange platforms, from cellphones to information compression and garage. heritage arithmetic and particular engineering innovations are saved to a minimal in order that just a uncomplicated wisdom of high-school arithmetic is required to appreciate the cloth lined. The authors commence with many useful purposes in coding, together with the repetition code, the Hamming code and the Huffman code. They then clarify the corresponding info concept, from entropy and mutual info to channel ability and the data transmission theorem. eventually, they supply insights into the connections among coding conception and different fields. Many labored examples are given through the e-book, utilizing useful purposes to demonstrate theoretical definitions. workouts also are incorporated, permitting readers to double-check what they've got discovered and achieve glimpses into extra complex issues, making this excellent for someone who wishes a short creation to the subject.
