EE 279 – Introduction to Digital Communication
Lectures are on Mondays and Wednesdays 12:50–2:05 pm in TBA, problem sessions time and place TBA.
Digital communication is a rather unique field in engineering in which theoretical ideas have had an extraordinary impact on the design of actual systems. The course provides a basic understanding of the analysis and design of digital communication systems, building on various ideas from probability theory, stochastic processes, linear algebra and Fourier analysis.
The main text is ‘‘Principles Of Digital Communications: A Top-Down Approach’’ by Bixio Rimoldi. This is a textbook in preparation and will be available electronically to registered students. The following books have been reserved in the Engineering Library for supplemental reading.
Basic Probability and Stochastic Processes (EE178, EE179, EE278B or equivalent), Linear Systems and Fourier transform (EE102A or EE261) and Linear Algebra (EE263 or equivalent).
