Conoscenze e abilità da conseguire

At the end of this course, the student will have knowledge of the essential constructs underpinning Communication Theory and its application in telecommunications systems. In particular, the student will master the fundamentals of Information Theory, Decision Theory, and Estimation Theory, as well as their practical application to Channel Coding for error protection.

Contenuti

The course contents are divided in 12 Chapters:

1) Introduction to Information Theory

2) Capacity and channel coding theorem

3) Information Theory for continuous random variables 

4) Block coding

5) Convolutional coding

6) Digital modulation techniques 

7) Decision theory

8) Estimation theory

9) Estimation of auxiliary parameters

10) Detection in digital receivers

11) Detection in the presence of memory: decoding

12) Network Information Theory

Metodi didattici

The course includes frontal lectures and practical examples. Attending all classes and taking personal notes is highly recommended. Group work can be exploited as needed on specific application examples. In terms of security, all students must attend Modules 1 and 2 on Health and Safety procedures [https://www.unibo.it/en/services-and-opportunities/health-and-assistance/health-and-safety/online-course-on-health-and-safety-in-study-and-internship-areas].

Modalità di verifica e valutazione dell'apprendimento

The final exam includes both a written part and an oral part. The written part consists in a questionnaire, with questions covering all of the 12 Chapters of the course. Question formats include (but are not limited to): open (essay), multiple choice, true/false, text drag-and-drop. 

The oral part is mandatory, and can cover any of the 12 Chapters.

The student is expected to show familiarity with all of the fundamental concepts of communications theory, with an ability to quickly recognise subjects and provide appropriate answers.
