Optical Coding Theory with Prime
Author(s): Wing C. Kwong, Guu-Chang Yang
Although several books cover the coding theory of wireless communications and the hardware technologies and coding techniques of optical CDMA, no book has been specifically dedicated to optical coding theory—until now. Written by renowned authorities in the field, Optical Coding Theory with Prime gathers together in one volume the fundamentals and developments of optical coding theory, with a focus on families of prime codes, supplemented with several families of non-prime codes. The book also explores potential applications to coding-based optical systems and networks.
Learn How to Construct and Analyze Optical Codes
The authors use a theorem-proof approach, breaking down theories into digestible form so that readers can understand the main message without searching through tedious proofs. The book begins with the mathematical tools needed to understand and apply optical coding theory, from Galois fields and matrices to Gaussian and combinatorial analytical tools. Using a wealth of examples, the authors show how optical codes are constructed and analyzed, and detail their performance in a variety of applications. The book examines families of 1-D and 2-D asynchronous and synchronous, multilength, and 3-D prime codes, and some non-prime codes.

"Written by two renowned world experts, this book is an authoritative, classic reference on the fields of optical coding theory and optical CDMA. The book shows how optical coding theory has evolved as optical coding system and network functionality and capacity expand over the years and [how the theory has] advanced with hardware technologies. It is a must add-on to the collection of other optical CDMA books in the market."

"The development of optical CDMA has follows the historical path of wireless CDMA in a way that requires that hardware technologies and coding theory advance in tandem. This book fills a vacuum in the important area of optical coding theory. In addition to covering the construction and analysis of many families of optical codes supported with comprehensive mathematical proofs, several applications extending beyond optical CDMA are also discussed in this book. This book is an authoritative text in the emerging field of optical CDMA, and will serve as an authoritative reference for researchers, engineers, and students in the field of optical CDMA."
