I want to study coding theory, but I don't know any text book about. Can anyone indicate to me some book? I'm in the last year of undergraduate mathematics course, so I would of a basic book, but that provides to me an experience in this field.
Peruse them online and see if they agree with you, they are not in any particular order and I may have missed a couple.
- A First Course in Coding Theory by Raymond Hill
- Information and Coding Theory by Gareth A. Jones and J.Mary Jones
- Introduction to Coding and Information Theory by Steven Roman
- Introduction to Coding Theory by Ron Roth
- Introduction to Coding Theory by Juergen Bierbrauer
- Coding Theory: A First Course by San Ling and Chaoping Xing
- Introduction to Coding Theory by Van Lint, J. H.
- Coding Theory and Cryptography: The Essentials, Second Edition by D.C. Hankerson, Gary Hoffman, D.A. Leonard and Charles C. Lindner
Note: there are also graduate level books in this area.
Other Potential Sources
- Try your local college library and see if you find others that suit you and your needs
- Search for introductory course materials and notes online
Another nice resource which IIRC has a decent amount of coding theory is the excellent Information Theory, Inference, and Learning Algorithms by David MacKay. It's a published book but it is also available online at http://www.inference.phy.cam.ac.uk/itila/book.html
