EE 87027 - Section 01: Network Info Theory (CRN 28963)
Long Title: Network Information Theory

Course Description:
Network information theory deals with the fundamental limits of information transmission over networks and optimal coding techniques that achieve these limits. It extends Shannon's point-to-point information theory to networks with multiple sources and destinations. The course aims to present key results and techniques in the theory. Topics include point-to-point systems (Shannon's channel coding theorem and rate distortion theory), single-hop networks (multiple access channels, broadcast channels, interference channels, channels with state, Gaussian fading channels, distributed lossless source coding, multiple description coding, joint source-channel coding), and multi-hop networks (Ford-Fulkerson max-flow min-cut theorem, noiseless networks and network coding, relay channels, capacity of large Gaussian networks, source coding over noiseless networks).Students should have taken a graduate level class in probability theory/stochastic processes (e.g., EE 60563/EE 60573). Prior exposure to information theory is recommended although not necessary.
