Information & Communication Theory

Information theory is sometimes referred to as the mathematical theory of communications. Its founder, Claude Shannon, is considered one of the greatest minds of the 20th century. This area has a long history of results that are beautiful (at least to the eyes of the “mathematically inclined”), surprising and useful. Information theory has provided much guidance for the design of more reliable systems and has reshaped the boundaries between what is possible in communications and what is not.
