Algebraic Coding Theory and Information Theory: DIMACS Workshop Algebraic Coding Theory and Information Theory, December 15-18, 2003, Rutgers University, Piscataway, New Jersey

Hardback
Collected here are papers that were presented at or inspired by the DIMACS workshop, Algebraic Coding Theory and Information Theory (Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ). Among the topics discussed are universal data compression, graph theoretical ideas in the construction of codes and lattices, decoding algorithms, and computation of capacity in various communications schemes. The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in coding and information theory.
