Correlation between Iterative Methods and Convolution Codes

  1. Mar 28, 2015 #1
    Hey guys so I have this Calc 3 project and the end is throwing me for a loop. I've done the encoding part, and i've coded the standard iterative methods, but I don't see how the two correlate so I can use the iterative methods to decode a "y stream" with the inputs specified.

    So these iterative methods take in an A|b , an initial guess, and a tolerance. I understand decoding the stream is solving the reverse equation Aix = yi and the Jacobi and Gauss-Seidel methods do that, but. Where would the y stream fit into this equation? I'm mainly asking because I don't understand how to format the y stream to fit with the method equations. According to the assignment the y stream is a combination of y0 and y1 (11, 0, 11) which doesn't seem like it would fit anywhere. Do I convert that y stream into a vector somehow? and does it replace b?
