Special Topics in Information Sciences and Systems - Modern Coding Theory
Course describes how magnetic recording, packet data transmission and wireless communication have influenced code design and how error-correcting codes use memory and redundancy to achieve reliable transmission and storage. Course also connects classical coding theory to the emerging topic of compressive sensing which aims to capture attributes of signals using a small number of measurements.
