The following prerequisites are strongly suggested. If you don't have these prereqs but think you
can handle the course, please see me to discuss it.
1. Graduate Level Probability (EE 381J or equivalent)
2. An undergraduate course in communications
3. Some experience with digital signal processing, e.g. discrete Fourier transform.
This course is meant to provide a strong foundation for graduate study and research in the area of
communications. The main objective of the course is to teach the students the engineering princi-
ples and analytical techniques required to design and understand digital communication systems.
In particular, the focus of this class is the reliable transmission and reception of finite-alphabet
(i.e. digital) symbols over noisy channels with memory.
