An Introduction to Information Theory
An Introduction to Information Theory. Instructor: Prof. Adrish Banerjee, Department of Electrical Engineering, IIT Kanpur. Information Theory answers two fundamental questions: what is the maximum data rate at which we can transmit over a communication link, and what is the fundamental limit of data compression. In this course we will explore answers to these two questions. We will study some practical source compression algorithms. We will also study how to compute channel capacity of simple channels.

|Lecture 22 - Rate Distortion Theory|
After a brief introduction to the problems rate distortion theory deals with, we calculate the rate distortion function for some simple sources. Next we discuss characterization of the rate distortion function. Finally, we talk about how to do simultaneous description of independent Gaussian random variables.
