Hi all,

In the Spring quarter Andrea Montanari will be teaching a course in EE that
might be of interest to CS theorists -- more info below:

EE 388 – Modern Coding Theory
Andrea Montanari, Stanford University, Spring 2018

The expression ‘modern coding theory’ refers to a broad family of coding
techniques and decoding algorithms that have been developed over the last
twenty years.  These techniques allow to achieve the information-theoretic
limits of reliable communication and data storage in many settings, while
keeping computational complexity under control.  A unifying theme in modern
coding theory is the focus on probabilistic designs/analysis methods. We
will explore the following topics:
- LDPC ensembles and their analysis through density evolution
- Achieving capacity via irregular ensembles and spatial coupling
- Polar codes
- Coding for distributed storage
- Coding for computing

Class Times and Locations
Tue-Thu 12:00PM - 1:20PM
Science Teaching Learning Center, Room 118
