Objectives and Content

The course gives an extension of the theory of error-correcting codes in INF 240 and considers construction, analysis and efficient decoding of convolutional codes, turbo codes, LDPC-codes and related codes. Different channel models and the relation between coding and modulation and techniques to combine these are studied.

Learning Outcomes

After completing the course the student should be able to:

  • Explain basic theory and applications of error-correcting codes.
  • Perform research towards a master degree in coding theory on graph based codes.
