We won't follow any particular one of these. I would like to thank the many students and colleagues, whose input on earlier versions of this book greatly helped in improving the presentation.
Special thanks are due to Shirley Halevy, Ronny Lempel, Gitit Ruckenstein, and Ido Tal, who taught the course with me at Technion and oered a wide variety of useful ideas while the book was being written. Ido was particularly helpful in detecting and correcting many of the errors in earlier drafts of the text obviously, the responsibility for all remaining errors is totally mine.
I owe thanks to Brian Marcus and Gadiel Seroussi for the good advice that they provided along the way, and to Gadiel, Vitaly Skachek, and the anonymous reviewers for the constructive comments and suggestions. I wish to thank the Labs for their kind hospitality, and the group members in particular for oering a very encouraging and stimulating environment.
Chapter 1 Introduction In this chapter, we introduce the model of a communication system, as originally proposed by Claude E. Shannon in We will then focus on the channel portion of the system and dene the concept of a probabilistic channel, along with models of an encoder and a decoder for the channel. As our primary example of a probabilistic channelhere, as well as in subsequent chapterswe will introduce the memoryless q-ary symmetric channel, with the binary case as the prevailing instance used in many practical applications.
The rst result is a coding theorem, which states that information through the channel can be transmitted with an arbitrarily small probability of decoding error, as long as the transmission rate is below a quantity referred to as the capacity of the channel. The second result is a converse coding theorem, which states that operating at rates above the capacity necessarily implies unreliable transmission.
In the remaining part of the chapter, we shift to a combinatorial setting and characterize error events that can occur in channels such as the q-ary symmetric channel, and can always be corrected by suitably selected encoders and decoders. We exhibit the trade-o between error correction and error detection: while an error-detecting decoder provides less information to the receiver, it allows us to handle twice as many errors.
In this context, we will become acquainted with the erasure channel, in which the decoder has access to partial information about the error events, namely, the location of the symbols that might be in error. We demonstrate thathere as wellsuch information allows us to double the number of correctable errors.
The communication can be 1.I owe thanks to Brian Marcus and Gadiel Seroussi for the good advice that they provided along the way, and to Gadiel, Vitaly Skachek, and the anonymous reviewers for the constructive comments and suggestions.

Error-correcting codes constitute one of the key ingredients in achieving the high degree of reliability required in modern data transmission and storage systems. The remaining parts of this chapter contain the asymptotic versions of the combinatorial bounds, yet also cover the information-theoretic bounds, namely, the Shannon Coding Theorem and Converse Coding Theorem for the q-ary symmetric channel.
