Welcome to EQ2845 Information Theory and Source Coding

Period 3, 7.5 ECTS credits

The course treats the principles and methods used to reduce the bit rate required to describe signals such as video, audio, speech, and images. The emphasis is on the underlying theoretical principles. The course covers the information theory of discrete and continuous variables, the estimation of probability distributions from data, lossless coding, rate-distortion theory, high-rate quantization theory, the generalized Lloyd algorithm for quantizer design, and transforms and signal-modeling techniques in the context of coding.
