Summary and Info
Using information theory and fundamental theorems on source and channel coding, this book describes the basics of channel coding and advanced coding techniques known as turbo codes. A discussion of lock codes and convolutional codes, including input- and output-decoding algorithms and recursive-systematic convolutional codes, leads into coverage of trellis-coded modulations, which have primary applications in high-spectral efficiency transmissions. The book further distinguishes convolutional-turbo codes from block-turbo codes and presents coding and decoding principles for each family, concluding with the implementation of turbo codes in circuits.
