In its early years, information theory – which grew out of a landmark 1948 paper by MIT alumnus and future professor Claude Shannon – was dominated by research on error-correcting codes: How do you encode information so as to guarantee its faithful transmission, even in the presence of the corrupting influences engineers call "noise"? Recently, one of the most intriguing developments in information theory has been a different kind of coding, called network coding, in which the...

Joint source-channel coding/decoding (JSCC/JSCD) techniques have become state-of-the-art and one of the challenging research subjects in the spatial communication area. This paper addresses the basic principles of joint source-channel optimal design and classification of various existing JSCC/JSCD methods. It presents a JSCD scheme based on variable-length coding, which is capable of providing reliable resolutions and has shown superior performance compared with the existing ones. The...

By JANESE HEAVIN Amy Surdin uses math every day in her accounting job to balance payroll and help restaurants do sales tax returns. But even with her hands-on skills, she couldn't help her sixth- grade son with his school homework. "I cannot understand why they can't do long multiplication or division to get answers," she said. "This works, and drawing out boxes of blocks or estimating generally then narrowing down the answer do not seem to be good means of mathematics." Surdin was...
