COM-302 / 6 crédits

Enseignant: Telatar Emre

Langue: Anglais

## Summary

This course is on the foundations of digital communication. The focus is on the transmission problem (rather than being on source coding).

## Content

Optimal receiver for waveform (AWGN) channels
Various signaling schemes and their performance
Efficient signaling via finite-state machines
Efficient decoding via Viterbi algorithm
Communicating over bandlimited AWGN channels
Nyquist Criterion
Communicating over passband AWGN channels

## Keywords

Detection, estimation, hypothesis testing, Nyquist, bandwidth, error probability, coding, decoding, baseband, passband, AM, QAM, PSK.

## Required courses

Signal processing for communications and Modèles stochastiques pour les communications

## Important concepts to start the course

Linear algebra, probability.

## Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

• Estimate the error probability of a communication link
• Design a "physical layer" communication link
• Implement a prototype of a "physical layer" transmitter/receiver via Matlab

## Teaching methods

Ex cathedra + exercises + project. Lots of reading at home and exercises in class.

## Assessment methods

With continuous control
