ECE7680 - Information Theory, Spring 2006
Professor Todd Moon
Electrical and Computer Engineering
Course Structure: Two 75-minute classes per week
Information theory explores the fundamental limits of the representation and transmission of information. We will focus on the definition and implications of (information) entropy, the source coding theorem, and the channel coding theorem. These concepts provide a vital background for researchers in the areas of data compression, signal processing, controls, and pattern recognition.
