Building on the success of the first edition, which offered a practical introductory approach to the techniques of error concealment, this book, now fully revised and updated, provides a comprehensive treatment of the subject and includes a wealth of additional features. The Art of Error Correcting Coding, Second Edition explores intermediate and advanced level concepts as well as those which will appeal to the novice.
All key topics are discussed, including Reed-Solomon codes, Viterbi decoding, soft-output decoding algorithms, MAP, log-MAP and MAX-log-MAP. Reliability-based algorithms GMD and Chase are examined, as are turbo codes, both serially and parallel concatenated, as well as low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes and their iterative decoders.
- Features additional problems at the end of each chapter and an instructor’s solutions manual
- Updated companion website offers new C/C ++programs and MATLAB scripts, to help with the understanding and implementation of basic ECC techniques
- Easy to follow examples illustrate the fundamental concepts of error correcting codes
- Basic analysis tools are provided throughout to help in the assessment of the error performance block and convolutional codes of a particular error correcting coding (ECC) scheme for a selection of the basic channel models
This edition provides an essential resource to engineers, computer scientists and graduate students alike for understanding and applying ECC techniques in the transmission and storage of digital information.
