Information Theory: Coding Theorems for Discrete Memoryless Systems presents mathematical models that involve independent random variables with finite range. This three-chapter text specifically describes the characteristic phenomena of information theory. Chapter 1 deals with information measures in simple coding problems, with emphasis on some formal properties of Shannon’s information and the non-block source coding. Chapter 2 describes the properties and practical aspects of the two-terminal systems. This chapter also examines the noisy channel coding problem, the computation of channel capacity, and the arbitrarily varying channels. Chapter 3 looks into the theory and practicality of multi-terminal systems. This book is intended primarily for graduate students and research workers in mathematics, electrical engineering, and computer science.

The popularity of multimedia content has led to the widespread distribution and consumption of digital multimedia data. As a result of the relative ease with which individuals may now alter and repackage digital content, ensuring that media content is employed by authorized users for its intended purpose is becoming an issue of eminent importance to both governmental security and commercial applications. Digital fingerprinting is a class of multimedia forensic technologies to track and identify entities involved in the illegal manipulation and unauthorized usage of multimedia content, thereby protecting the sensitive nature of multimedia data as well as its commercial value after the content has been delivered to a recipient. "Multimedia Fingerprinting Forensics for Traitor Tracing" covers the essential aspects of research in this emerging technology, and explains the latest development in this field. It describes the framework of multimedia fingerprinting, discusses the challenges that may be faced when enforcing usage polices, and investigates the design of fingerprints that cope with new families of multiuser attacks that may be mounted against media fingerprints. The discussion provided in the book highlights challenging problems as well as future trends in this research field, providing readers with a broader view of the evolution of the young field of multimedia forensics. Topics and features: Comprehensive coverage of digital watermarking and fingerprinting in multimedia forensics for a number of media types. Detailed discussion on challenges in multimedia fingerprinting and analysis of effective multiuser collusion attacks on digital fingerprinting. Thorough investigation of fingerprint design and performance analysis for addressing different application concerns arising in multimedia fingerprinting. Well-organized explanation of problems and solutions, such as order-statistics-based nonlinear collusion attacks, efficient detection and identification of colluders, group-oriented fingerprint design, and anti-collusion codes for multimedia fingerprinting. Presenting the state of the art in collusion-resistant digital fingerprinting for multimedia forensics, this invaluable book is accessible to a wide range of researchers and professionals in the fields of electrical engineering, computer science, information technologies, and digital rights management.

MIMO Transceiver Design via Majorization Theory presents an up-to-date unified mathematical framework for the design of point-to-point MIMO transceivers with channel state information (CSI) at both sides of the link according to an arbitrary cost function as a measure of the system performance.
Due to the rapidly increasing need for methods of data compression, quantization has become a flourishing field in signal and image processing and information theory. The same techniques are also used in statistics (cluster analysis), pattern recognition, and operations research (optimal location of service centers). The book gives the first mathematically rigorous account of the fundamental theory underlying these applications. The emphasis is on the asymptotics of quantization errors for absolutely continuous and special classes of singular probabilities (surface measures, self-similar measures) presenting some new results for the first time. Written for researchers and graduate students in probability theory the monograph is of potential interest to all people working in the disciplines mentioned above.

Mastering High Performance Multiprocessor Signaling Available late Q1 Welcome to the era of the Intel(r) QuickPath Interconnect Mastering High Performance Multiprocessor Signaling explains the electrical design, board layout, test & measurement, and validation elements involved in implementing the Intel QuickPath Interconnect, the foundation of future generations of Intel(r) microprocessor systems, using a high speed, packetized, point-to-point system interconnect that uses multiple narrow high speed differential links to stitch together processors into a fabric of a distributed shared memory-style platform architecture. Creating circuits for the very high speeds demanded by today s computers require skill sets that are not commonly provided by conventional electrical engineering education. Differential signaling is now the fundamental technology enabling high speed, microwave frequency data rates. Signaling speeds of Intel QuickPath Interconnect are now so high, transmission channel artifacts such as frequency dependent attenuation, ringing and crosstalk will have an influence across several bits of transmitted data.Mastering High Performance Multiprocessor Signaling is written by Intel experts who explain the new concepts and vocabulary of this new domain and relate their insights and experience, thoroughly explaining each step from design through validation, so that electrical circuit developers can directly apply the information contained here to produce high quality products that meet the demanding time-to-market requirements of the computer industry today.
This is a concise presentation of the concepts underlying the design of digital communication systems, without the detail that can overwhelm students. Many examples, from the basic to the cutting-edge, show how the theory is used in the design of modern systems and the relevance of this theory will motivate students. The theory is supported by practical algorithms so that the student can perform computations and simulations. Leading edge topics in coding and wireless communication make this an ideal text for students taking just one course on the subject. Fundamentals of Digital Communications has coverage of turbo and LDPC codes in sufficient detail and clarity to enable hands-on implementation and performance evaluation, as well as 'just enough' information theory to enable computation of performance benchmarks to compare them against. Other unique features include space-time communication and geometric insights into noncoherent communication and equalization.
