Analog-to-digital (A/D) conversion is typically a deterministic operation. A signal comes in, a sequence of bits comes out. The output bits are constrained to yield accurate reconstruction of the incoming signal via some pre-specified method. Nevertheless, various notions of randomness play important roles in the design and analysis of A/D algorithms. We'll see some classical and modern examples.
