Channel Coding in the Presence of Side Information reviews the concepts and methods of communication systems equipped with side information both from the theoretical and practical points of view. These channels have been widely studied over the years and can serve as models in a wide range of problems, depending on some assumptions regarding the channel state and on the availability and quality (clean or noisy) of the side information at the transmitter and/or the receiver. Channel Coding in the Presence of Side Information provides a overview of the main theoretical results pertaining to the subject before presenting specific channel models for various problems. It then shows how this theory and models are used in several applications. The authors then discuss some more advanced, related problems including the Wyner-Ziv problem, the Gaussian vector broadcast channel and multi-user channels. Channel Coding in the Presence of Side Information is a comprehensive review that gives the re der an insightful introduction to one of the most important topics in modern communications systems.
