Fall 2017, EECS 554 (Introduction to Digital Communication and Coding)
This is an introduction to fundamentals of communication theory and what is used in current wireless systems. The emphasis is on modulation techniques and the system design of optimal receivers for digital communication, as well as studying the performance evaluation in wireless systems. Furthermore, basic techniques for source and channel coding are presented.
Winter 2017, EECS 650 (Channel Coding Theory)
In the first part of this course, we cover some required background to study linear binary block codes and algebraic codes over finite fields. In particular, some of the well-known classical codes such as Reed-Solomon codes and BCH codes are studied. In the second part of the course, we study some essential aspects of modern codes such as turbo codes and LDPC codes. In the third part of the course, we study polar codes and channel polarization together with practical aspects of their implementation.
