Information theory: coding theorems for discrete memoryless systems

By: Csiszar, Imre.
Contributor(s): Korner, Jason.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: UK Cambridge university press 2016Edition: 2nd ed.Description: xxi, 499 p.ISBN: 9781107565043.Subject(s): Coding theory | Information theory | Discrete memoryless systemsDDC classification: 518 Summary: Csiszár and Körner's book is widely regarded as a classic in the field of information theory, providing deep insights and expert treatment of the key theoretical issues. It includes in-depth coverage of the mathematics of reliable information transmission, both in two-terminal and multi-terminal network scenarios. Updated and considerably expanded, this new edition presents unique discussions of information theoretic secrecy and of zero-error information theory, including the deep connections of the latter with extremal combinatorics. The presentations of all core subjects are self contained, even the advanced topics, which helps readers to understand the important connections between seemingly different problems. Finally, 320 end-of-chapter problems, together with helpful hints for solving them, allow readers to develop a full command of the mathematical techniques. It is an ideal resource for graduate students and researchers in electrical and electronic engineering, computer science and applied mathematics. http://www.cambridge.org/nu/academic/subjects/engineering/communications-and-signal-processing/information-theory-coding-theorems-discrete-memoryless-systems-2nd-edition?format=PB&isbn=9781107565043#ozwjOXPiVdHjt15E.97
