About this Textbook

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.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book could serve as a reference in the general area of information theory and would be of interest to electrical engineers, computer engineers, or computer scientists with an interest in information theory. Each chapter has an appropriate problem set at the end and a brief paragraph that provides insight into the historical significance of the material covered therein. … Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." (J. Beidler, Choice, Vol. 46 (9), May, 2009)

"The book consisting of 21 chapters is divided into two parts. Part I, Components of Information Theory … . Part II Fundamentals of Network Coding … . A comprehensive instructor’s manual is available. This is a well planned comprehensive book on the subject. The writing style of the author is quite reader friendly. … it is a welcome addition to the subject and will be very useful to students as well as to the researchers in the field." (Arjun K. Gupta, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1154, 2009)
