Winter 2017: Theory and Practice of Data Compression

Course No.: EECS 553
Credit Hours: 3 credits
Instructor: David Neuhoff
Prerequisites: EECS 501, Probability and Random Processes

Course Description:
Data compression (also called source coding) is the process of creating binary representations of data from sources such as speech, images, audio, video or text. This course gives a broad introduction to the theory and practice of lossy compression, where perfect reproductions are not possible or require too many bits (for example for speech, images, audio, video), and some introduction to lossless compression, where perfect reproductions are required (for example for text or other discrete data). Particular attention is paid to compressing images, speech and video.

The lossy compression methods include a number of quantization techniques: scalar, vector, predictive (e.g. DPCM), transform (e.g., JPEG, MPEG, H.26X), subband (e.g., MP3, wavelet, JPEG2000), predictive and adaptive quantizers (e.g., CELP as used in cell phones to compress speech). The theory is mainly high-resolution quantization theory.

The lossless compression methods include Huffman, conditional, run-length, Lempel-Ziv, and arithmetic codes. The theory is entropy theory.

Students gain experience in data compression via a term project.

The course is oriented toward first and second year graduate students. No previous introduction to data compression is presumed. [More Info]

Winter 2017: Channel Coding Theory and Applications

Course No.: EECS 650
Credit Hours: 3 credits
Instructor: Hessam Mahdavifar
Prerequisites: (Advisory) EECS 501 and MATH 419

Course Description:
Coding theory is the science of the systematic study of structured sets called codes, providing reliable communications and data storage in noisy environments. Today, error-correcting codes are among the fundamental parts of any communication system and data storage system.

The classical approach to construct such structured sets has been to consider certain algebraic objects such as vector spaces and finite fields. In the first part of this course, we cover some required background to study linear binary block codes and algebraic codes over finite fields. In particular, some of the well-known classical codes such as Reed-Solomon codes and BCH codes are studied.

Another approach to construct structured sets or codes has been to exploit properties of certain graphical models and trellises. This approach was essentially born by the invention of convolutional codes in 50s but was mostly discarded till 90s due to the lack of computational power. The invention of turbo codes and the re-discovery of low-density parity-check codes in 90s led to the birth of a new subfield of coding theory called modern coding theory. In the second part of the course, we study some essential aspects of modern coding theory.

A classical goal of information theory set by Shannon 70 years ago has been to construct explicit codes with practical encoder and decoder that achieve the fundamental limit of channel capacity. This goal was finally accomplished by the invention of polar codes in 2009. This has revolutionized the field of coding and information theory as many open problems have been solved using polar codes and the new notion of channel polarization. Besides being asymptotically optimal, polar codes have also been shown to perform very well at short block length which has led to their adoption in 5G wireless communication systems. In the third part of the course, we study polar codes and channel polarization together with practical aspects of their implementation. [More Info]
