Christoph Bunte Amos Lapidoth Alex Samorodnitsky, "A Proof of the Ahlswede-Cai-Zhang Conjecture".  Jul 2014

Ahlswede, Cai, and Zhang proved that, in the noise- free limit, the zero-undetected-error capacity is ...

G. David Forney, Jr. Daniel J. Costello, Jr., "Channel Coding: The Road to Channel Capacity".  Jul 2007

Starting from Shannon's celebrated 1948 channel coding theorem, we trace the evolution of channel coding from Hamming codes to capacity-approaching codes. We focus ...
