Instructor: Hari Balakrishnan

This lecture focuses on shared media networks and shared communications channels. Measures for optimization such as utilization, fairness, and bounded delay are introduced, along with an example model using slotted and stabilized Aloha.

Course Description

An introduction to several fundamental ideas in electrical engineering and computer science, using digital communication systems as the vehicle. The three parts of the course—bits, signals, and packets—cover three corresponding layers of abstraction that form the basis of communication systems like the Internet.

The course, taught by Prof. George Verghese, teaches ideas that are useful in other parts of EECS: abstraction, probabilistic analysis, superposition, time and frequency-domain representations, system design principles and trade-offs, and centralized and distributed algorithms. The course emphasizes connections between theoretical concepts and practice using programming tasks and some experiments with real-world communication channels.
