Dear Graduating Students,
Muriel Medard has collaborated with several colleagues to examine the use of two dominating information theories in today's vast and growing transmission of data while both avoiding noise and demonstrating how to determine the capacities of networks. Medard, California Institute of Technology's Michelle Effros and the late Ralf Koetter of the University of Technology in Munich have addressed some of the toughest issues in a two part paper published recently in IEEE Transactions on Information Theory.
