Error Control Coding: Course Description

Communication between digital devices has become vital to how businesses and individuals stay connected with each other and the world. With the increased use of digital communication comes an increased need for coding error correction. In this OpenCourseWare from USU's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, modern mathematical concepts drive coding instructions. Many coding techniques are touched on in this course, including convolutional codes, trellis-coded modulations and the Viterbi algorithm. This undergraduate-level OpenCourseWare is designed to provide students with a comprehensive overview of the multiple methods and purposes used for error coding. The course is taught by Utah Sate University Professor Todd K. Moon and uses many theorems and proofs to help students understand the topics discussed.

Lecture notes and homework assignments are available for download. To learn more, visit the error coding and control course page.
