Book Series

Hoger Boche (TU München), together with Wolfgang Utschick (TU München) and Rudolf Mathar (RWTH Aachen), is editor of the book series, "Foundations in Signal Processing, Communications and Networking".

Published titles in this series

This book series presents monographs about fundamental topics and trends in signal processing, communications and networking in the field of information technology. The main focus of the series is to contribute on mathematical foundations and methodologies for the understanding, modeling and optimization of technical systems driven by information technology. Besides classical topics of signal processing, communications and networking the scope of this series includes many topics which are comparably related to information technology, network theory, and control. All monographs will share a rigorous mathematical approach to the addressed topics and an information technology related context.

The fifth volume of Rudolf Ahlswede’s lectures on Information Theory focuses on several problems that were at the heart of a lot of his research. One of the highlights of the entire lecture note series is surely Part I of this volume on arbitrarily varying channels (AVC), a subject in which Ahlswede was probably the world's leading expert. Appended to Part I is a survey by Holger Boche and Ahmed Mansour on recent results concerning AVC and arbitrarily varying wiretap channels (AVWC). After a short Part II on continuous data compression, Part III, the longest part of the book, is devoted to distributed information. This Part includes discussions on a variety of related topics; among them let us emphasize two which are famously associated with Ahlswede: "multiple descriptions", on which he produced some of the best research worldwide, and "network coding", which had Ahlswede among the authors of its pioneering paper. The final Part IV on "Statistical Inference under Communication constraints" is mainly based on Ahlswede’s joint paper with Imre Csiszar, which received the Best Paper Award of the IEEE Information Theory Society.

The lectures presented in this work, which consists of 10 volumes, are suitable for graduate students in Mathematics, and also for those working in Theoretical Computer Science, Physics, and Electrical Engineering with a background in basic Mathematics. The lectures can be used either as the basis for courses or to supplement them in many ways. Ph.D. students will also find research problems, often with conjectures, that offer potential subjects for a thesis. More advanced researchers may find questions which form the basis of entire research programs.

Compressed Sensing

Applications to Communication and Digital Signal Processing

© 2019, Hardcover-ISBN 978-981-10-6540-8 (eBook ISBN 978-981-10-6541-5)

more Informationen

This textbook focuses on applications of compressed sensing (CS) and sub-Nyquist sampling techniques to wireless communications such as multi-carrier, IMIMO, UWB, LTE, 5G, Internet of Things, and machine learning. Written for an engineering audience, the book is presented in a strictly mathematical manner, and to keep it self-contained and accessible to engineering students it explains all the mathematical tools used. It also develops a generalization of CS to more structured signal models, which is necessary in order to apply CS to digital communication. The work is based on research material collected by the authors over recent years.
