Signal Processing, Coding, and Communications, REU 2008
A 10-week research opportunity at the forefront of signal processing and communication theory at the beautiful mountain valley setting of Utah State University.
Signal processing is the art and science of taking signals – music, speech, radio, images --- and doing things with them using mathematics and computers. Communication theory is the foundation by which information is transmitted and stored. Coding theory provides for reliable information transmission. (Your iPod and cell phone are applications of these theories! )
