This course is all about how to use channel coding for reliable data transmission at high rates over discrete-time continuous-valued channels. Covered topics:

* The AWGN Channel
Capacity, achievable rates.

* Digital Modulation
Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM), Amplitude Shift Keying (ASK), Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM), Amplitude Phase Shift Keying (APSK).

* Probabilistic Shaping
Capacity-achieving distributions, optimization over input distributions, distribution matching.

* Coding
Bit-metric decoding, Gray labeling, bit-interleaved coded modulation (BICM).

* Receiver quantization

* Channel measurements
Capacity estimation, coded modulation system design.

Previous knowledge expected

- Basics of digital communications
- Basics of channel coding

It is recommended to take one the following modules additionally:
- Information Theory, Channel Coding, Channel Codes for Iterative Decoding
