Objectives This lecture presents the main elements in Information Theory
such as entropy, data compression, channel modelling, tradeoffs
between throughput and costs in transmission channels and
reachable limits for them.
Also information coding schemes and error detection and correction
techniques are presented. This covers the field of linear block,
cyclic and redundancy codes as well as FEC, ARQ and hybrid
techniques. Final performance regarding throughput and delay
for each strategy will be explained.
