- Block codes lecture in HTML and
PDF for Wednesday,
April 4. If you use the HTML version, you will also need to
refer to
these figures from Sklar's book on Digital Communications. Also,
the table of Galois field elements is missing and will be added later.
- Convolutional codes lecture
in PDF.
- Advanced coding lectures:
trellis codes, interleaving, and turbo codes. Note that any figures
that appear to be missing were covered on the board in class.
- Lecture on fading in PDF format.
- Lecture on military communications,
including spread spectrum and distributed routing in PDF format. The
order of the slides is different than what I used in class, but the
slides are the same.
- Material on second generation
cellular systems in PDF format.
