Course objectives and content

This course focuses on the most fundamental elements, processing methods and laws and boundaries stemming from the nature that are encountered in all electronic and electro-magnetic communication systems (Internet, 2G/3G/4G/5G mobile networks, WLANs/WiFi,  satellite systems, etc.). These include the concepts of filtering and modulation and phenomena like noise, distortion and interference. Also fundamental information theoretic bounds applicable to all communication systems are covered, and how they are related to concepts like signal bandwidth, energy and noise power.
