This subject aims to present the basic principles that underlie the analysis and design of digital communication systems. This subject involves the transmission of information in digital form from a source that generates the information to one or more destinations. In this subject, we cover the following topics: Probability and Stochastic Processes, Digital Modulation Schemes, Optimum Receiver for AWGN Channels, An Introduction to Information Theory, Error Control Coding, and Digital Communication Through Band-Limited Channels. After the study of this course, the students should be able to apply advanced mathematic tools and analysis methodologies in digital communications, to design and evaluate the performance of optimum receivers for various modulation methods when the channel corrupts the transmitted signal by the addition of white Gaussian noise, and analyse the fundamental limits on digital communications from information theory perspective etc.
