Error Correction Coding

Course #EC4580

Est.imated Completion Time: 3 months


Digital military communication systems often employ error control coding to improve effectiveness against noise, fading, and jamming. This course, together with EC4560 provides students the necessary foundations for understanding the principles of such systems. Topics include Shannon's channel capacity theorem and coding methods for error control in digital communications systems, including convolutional, block, concatenated, and turbo codes as well as trellis-coded modulation. Applications of error control coding to modern digital communications systems are discussed.
