Coding theory is concerned with successfully transmitting data through a noisy channel and correcting errors in corrupted messages. It is of central importance for many applications in computer science or engineering. This book gives a comprehensive introduction to coding theory whilst only assuming basic linear algebra. It contains a detailed and rigorous introduction to the theory of block codes and moves on to more advanced topics like BCH codes, Goppa codes and Sudan's algorithm for list decoding. The issues of bounds and decoding, essential to the design of good codes, features prominently. The authors of this book have, for several years, successfully taught a course on coding theory to students at the National University of Singapore. This book is based on their experiences and provides a thoroughly modern introduction to the subject. There are numerous examples and exercises, some of which introduce students to novel or more advanced material.
The purpose of this work is to offer those interested in a career in the Medical Billing and Coding field an insight on what they may expect before investing a great amount of time, energy, and expense into a career they may not have enough information about to make an informed decision. It is intended to be an introduction to the field in general and perhaps to answer some of the common questions asked by those considering this career field. While it can not answer every question, the book comes with unlimited email questions to the author related to the works content and topic to further assist those exploring this career path. This work is not intended or represented to be an instruction manual or teaching guide in the practice of Medical Billing or Medical Coding.
