Shannon's coding theorem for a noisy channel1 indicates that information can be transmitted as reliably as desired in the presence of noise, provided the transmitted rate does not exceed the channel capacity.Expand

This paper summarizes the results of investigations into two methods for increasing the reliability of digital communication systems: 1) by improvements in the decision system of the receiver, and 2) by the introduction of a feedback link for error correction between the receiver and the transmitter.Expand

THE development of communication theory has led to the introduction of concepts such as integration, correlation, matched filtering, comb filtering, probability of detection, etc. Much confusion… Expand

This paper presents a discussion of four QPPM (quantized pulse position modulation) voice communication systems that make use of the ideas of Wald's sequential decision theory. The "double-threshold,… Expand
