On the Impact of Information Theory on Today’s Communication Technology

Abstract

The impact of results from Information Theory on todays information technology is illustrated by means of derivations from capacity formula and chain rule. By this, the huge possible increase in power and bandwidth efficiency for transmission of analog source signals via modern digital communication techniques is enlightened. The foundations of modern approaches like OFDM, CDMA, coded modulation, precoding for equalization, signaling over MIMO channels, etc. in theorems of Information Theory, especially the chain rule is pointed out.
