Summary "The need to transmit and store massive amounts of data reliably and without error is a vital part of modern communications systems. Error-correcting codes play a fundamental role in minimizing data corruption caused by defects such as noise, interference, cross talk, and packet loss. This book provides an accessible introduction to the basic elements of algebraic codes, and discusses their use in a variety of applications. The author describes a range of important coding techniques, including Reed-Solomon codes, BCH codes, trellis codes, and turbocodes. Throughout the book, mathematical theory is illustrated by reference to many practical examples
The book is aimed at graduate students of electrical and computer engineering, and at practising engineers whose work involves communications or signal processing."--Jacket
