Error Control Coding: From Theory to Practice provides a concise introduction to basic coding techniques and their application. The fundamental concepts of coding theory are explained using simple examples with minimum use of complex mathematical tools. The selection of appropriate codes and the design of decoders are discussed.

Bridging the gap between digital communications and information theory, this accessible approach will appeal to students and practising engineers alike.

The clear presentation and practical emphasis make this book an excellent tool for both communications and electronic engineering students. Practitioners new to the field will find this text an essential guide to coding.

Features include:

  • End of chapter problems to test and develop the readers understanding of the most popular codes and decoding methods
  • Finite field arithematic and algebraic decoding methods for BCH and Reed-Solomon codes
  • Detailed coverage of Viterbi decoding and related implementation issues
  • Turbo codes and related code types, including Gallager codes and turbo product codes
  • Practical examples of MAP and SOVA decoding for turbo codes
