Coding and Quantization: Workshop (Series in Discrete Mathematics & Theoretical Computer Science)


Up to 2 WeeksUsually despatched within 2 weeks


This volume contains the proceedings of the DIMACS/IEEE workshop on coding and quantization. The theme of the workshop was the application of discrete mathematics to reliable data transmission and source compression. These applications will become more significant in the coming years, with the advent of high-capacity cellular networks, personal communications devices, and the 'wireless office'. The articles are written by experts from industry and from academia. Requiring only a background in basic undergraduate mathematics, this book appeals to mathematicians interested in multidimensional Euclidean geometry (especially lattice theory), as well as to engineers interested in bandwidth efficient communication or vector quantization.
