Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Upon completion of the course, the students will be able to
I) explain the benefit from applying error control coding (and determine this more exactly in given situations)
II) apply basic concepts of coding theory (including related algebra)
III) differentiate between block coding and convolutional coding
IV) classify and describe the most important families of codes (in particular, state-of-the-art error-correcting codes)
V) apply a proper decoding scheme to a chosen coding method

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Error-detecting and error-correcting codes for digital communication and storage. The theory of the most important code classes, including an introduction to turbo and LDPC codes. Coding/decoding algorithms. Applications.
