Basic knowlege in statistics, stochastics
The students understand the the basic concept of information, i.e., entropy, differential entropy, mutual information, channel capacity. The students are able to apply their knowledge to communication systems and they are able to evaluate the effectivness of source- and channel coding schemes. Besides the knowledge of block codes and convolutional codes the students are also familiar with the principles of Turbo codes and LDPC codes.
