Information Theory and Coding by Example, Hardback Book


This fundamental monograph introduces both the probabilistic and algebraic aspects of information theory and coding.

It has evolved from the authors' years of experience teaching at the undergraduate level, including several Cambridge Maths Tripos courses.

The book provides relevant background material, a wide range of worked examples and clear solutions to problems from real exam papers.

It is a valuable teaching aid for undergraduate and graduate students, or for researchers and engineers who want to grasp the basic principles.
