A First Course to Network Coding
Network coding is a rising paradigm for data transportation. It brings light to a prior dark area: that a node within a network can process information passing through it to make better use of the transmission capacity. This is a textbook aiming to introduce network coding to people with limited background in mathematics and/or engineering. The study of network coding interacts with various fields in engineering, mathematics, physics, even biology. For readers to form a rigorous understanding of network coding, relevent knowledge in mathematics, information theory, engineering etc. is integrated in this book.
