Features a modern treatment of information theory that combines with a new topic of network coding
Includes numerous examples, illustrations, and original problems
Structured systematically as a textbook and includes problems with solutions
Information Theory and Network Coding consists of two parts: Components of Information Theory, and Fundamentals of Network Coding Theory. Part I is a rigorous treatment of information theory for discrete and continuous systems. In addition to the classical topics, there are such modern topics as the I-Measure, Shannon-type and non-Shannon-type information inequalities, and a fundamental relation between entropy and group theory. With information theory as the foundation, Part II is a comprehensive treatment of network coding theory with detailed discussions on linear network codes, convolutional network codes, and multi-source network coding.
Other important features include:
Derivations that are from the first principle
A large number of examples throughout the book
Many original exercise problems
Easy-to-use chapter summaries
Two parts that can be used separately or together for a comprehensive course
Information Theory and Network Coding is for senior undergraduate and graduate students in electrical engineering, computer science, and applied mathematics. This work can also be used as a reference for professional engineers in the area of communications.
