DURING the transmission of information, errors may occur because of the presence of noise, such as thermal noise in electronic signals or interference with other sources of radiation. One wants to recover the information with the minimum error possible. In theory this is possible by increasing the power of the emitter source. But as the cost is proportional to the energy fed into the channel, it costs less to code the message before sending it, thus including redundant 'coding' bits, and to… CONTINUE READING
