Prerequisite: COMP 201

**COMP 490 Introduction to Information and Coding Theory (3+0+0) 3 ECTS 6 **

(Bilgi ve Kodlama Kuramına Giriş)

This course will introduce basic mathematical principles behind data compression and data protection for efficiency and high failure tolerance. The theory of information will be broken down to learning the concepts of entropy, mutual information, channel capacity, source and channel coding at an introductory level. Basic Gaussian as well as some discrete symmetric source and channel models will be considered. The fundamental limits of data compression and data transmission will be examined using the techniques introduced in this class. The course will also cover designing practical coding algorithms such as Huffman and standard deterministic and probabilistic block codes with the details of encoding and decoding algorithms.
