Introduction to EECS II: Digital Communication Systems's Full Profile

Overview

Description

An introduction to several fundamental ideas in electrical engineering and computer science, using digital communication systems as the vehicle. The three parts of the coursebits, signals, and packetscover three corresponding layers of abstraction that form the basis of communication systems like the Internet.The course teaches ideas that are useful in other parts of EECS: abstraction, probabilistic analysis, superposition, time and frequency-domain representations, system design principles and trade-offs, and centralized and distributed algorithms. The course emphasizes connections between theoretical concepts and practice using programming tasks and some experiments with real-world communication channels.
