This is an introduction to two-dimensional information theory and coding for students of electrical engineering and computer science at the advanced-undergraduate or beginning-graduate level, with emphasis on applications to transmission, storage, compression, and error protection of graphic information. The authors (professors of photonics engineering at the Technical U. of Denmark) present chapters on the basics of information theory, finite-state sources, channels and linear codes, Reed-Solomon codes and their decoding, and source coding that are suitable for a one-semester course. More advanced material is covered in chapters on information in two-dimensional media, constrained two-dimensional fields for storage, and Reed-Solomon codes in applications.
