Course contents: 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.
The course can be passed in two ways, via activity points and via exam only. The alternative based on activity points supports learning best. However, for students that for one reason or another are not able to attend the events, the exam-only alternative is an option. Note that the exam is included, and mandatory, in the activity points alternative. Each student essentially gets two grades for these two alternatives; the better counts.
The lecture slides can be downloaded from the Materials page.
Exercises appear each weak in the Assignments page.
NOTE: Course-related questions MUST BE addressed to the teaching assistant Ferenc Szollosi (firstname.lastname@example.org).
