Summary This introductory book on error control coding focuses on key implementation issues and performance analysis with applications valuable to both mathematicians and engineers.
features a complete discussion of punctured convolutional codes. includes full-chapter coverage of performance analysis of block codes, including code performance over the fading channel (i.e., cellular mobile phone systems). examines system implementation issues for the Viterbi Decoder and the various decoders for Reed-Solomon and BCH codes. devotes two full chapters to the theory of finite fields. features the most current research results on error control for channels with feedback. includes an entire chapter on trellis coded modulation. includes historical background and emphasizes practical, up-to-date applications (i.e., the space program) for all key areas in the book.
