About this book


Foreword by James L. Massey.
Codes, Graphs, and Systems is an excellent reference for both academic researchers and professional engineers working in the fields of communications and signal processing. A collection of contributions from world-renowned experts in coding theory, information theory, and signal processing, the book provides a broad perspective on contemporary research in these areas. Survey articles are also included. Specific topics covered include convolutional codes and turbo codes; detection and equalization; modems; physics and information theory; lattices and geometry; and behaviors and codes on graphs.
Codes, Graphs, and Systems is a tribute to the leadership and profound influence of G. David Forney, Jr. The 35 contributors to the volume have assembled their work in his honor.
