A rather general diagram for a (point-to-point) communication system is shown in Figure 7.1. The source might be digital (e.g., a data file) or analog (e.g., a video signal). Since an analog source can be sampled without loss of information and without loss of generality, we consider only discrete-time sources and model them as discrete-time stochastic processes.
