This popular textbook on error control coding has been thoroughly revised and updated to include all the important new developments in the field over the past 20 years. Three major new topics in the theory and application of coding are highlighted in this second edition:
A total of seven completely new chapters are devoted to these three topics.
Continuing with the style that made the first edition so successful, the authors present the essential aspects of complex material in an easily understood manner requiring only a minimum of mathematical background. Many examples and performance curves are included to help illustrate important concepts. Extensive sets of exercises and references are given at the end of each chapter. This makes the book well suited as a text for a first course in coding theory at either the beginning graduate or advanced undergraduate level. Various choices of topics can be included in one semester. Alternately, most of the book can be covered in a two-semester sequence. Because of its comprehensive coverage of the fundamental theory and practical application of error control coding systems and its many lists of optimum codes, the book is also ideal as a reference for practicing digital system designers.
