The book is divided into sections which can be used as a basis for an elementary course on coding theory for mathematicians, a second course for mathematicians, an elementary first course for engineers, and a second course for engineers. The remainder is directed towards the experts in the subject and is suitable for advanced courses and seminars. This work presents a unified account of all the mathematical techniques used to date. It is presented in an intelligible manner and is designed as both introductory textbook f
A 20th century classic I find it a shame that I can't give this book five stars as it has been one of the definitive works of error correcting codes for over 25 years, but the Index is just really bad. One of the major types of symmetry is the self-similar Hadamard matrix and it isn't in the Index.This book has . A Customer said An encyclopedic guide for beginners and professionals. Certainly the best coding theory text in existence. Introduces the subject, as well as mathematical topics used in the study of error-correcting codes. It is also a very good reference for mathematicians and engineers--with summaries of current knowlege of many codes.
