This course extends and deepens the topics of the basic communication theory courses in the following main areas. 1) Advanced information theory in coding and Network Information Theory develop a framework for understanding the principles of the channel coding in single-user and multi-node/multi-user scenarios. 2) The algebraic coding presents classical topics of block and convolutional codes. 3) Advanced coding technique focuses on turbo, LDPC, Space-Time codes and Wireless Network Coding. 4) Advanced decoding technique, namely iterative and multi-user decoding is a fundamental tool for decoding capacity approaching channel codes.
