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.
