Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing)
  • unspecified - 2 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The course provides students essential knowledge of information theory with highlight to error control coding (coding theory). Principles of selected codes at course will be described (linear block codes, cyclic codes, BCH codes, convolution codes, and introduction to modern codes techniques) coding/decoding techniques with practical examples at Matlab.
The students acquire theoretical and practice knowledge of error control coding techniques. The students after course can implement of various coding/decoding algorithms.
Prerequisites
Attendance at seminars, laboratory and PC exercises. Students solve two tests during semester. Course is finished by oral exam, student must respond to questions from predefined set of topics.

Assessment methods and criteria
unspecified
Students should be known theory of probability, polynomial, etc.
