Abstract : The research was concerned with algebraic coding theory, the detection and estimation of signals in noise and fundamental problems in information theory. Specific topics include: the algebraic decoding of codes when the output of the channel contains more levels than the transmitted signals, the joint detection and estimation of signals in noise, the estimation of parameters of a recursive system which is an approximation to an unknown system, source coding for correlated information sources, the determination of the channel capacity region for a multiple input channel with correlated message sources with and without feedback and the amount of information required to specify one of K items from a list of N items.
