Summary This book starts with a description of information theory by focusing on the quantitative measurement of information and by introducing two fundamental theorems on source and channel coding. It then discusses the basics of channel coding in two chapters, the first devoted to block codes and the second to convolutional codes. In these two chapters, the authors introduce weighted input and output decoding algorithms and recursive systematic convolutional codes, which are used in the rest of the book. In part one the book covers trellis coded modulations, which have their primary applications in h
