Electrical Engineering Information Theory 50 Years of Discovery In 1948 Claude Shannon published "The Mathematical Theory of Communication," the paper that single-handedly started the field of information theory and laid the foundation for virtually all aspects of modern-day communications. Now, Information Theory celebrates the discovery of this dynamic field with a major collection of 25 tutorial articles spanning the last 50 years. With over 3,000 references, this book is an ideal resource for industry researchers, practicing engineers, and graduate students in communications, signal processing, and computing. Written by leaders in the field, these articles provide insightful introductions and useful summaries bridging 50 years of work on the theory and practice of:

  • Data compression
  • Error correction
  • Modulation and coding
  • Detection and estimation
  • Shannon theory
  • Signal Processing

Information Theory also includes a CD-ROM that contains the author, subject, and transaction indexes of the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory Digital Library. This CD-ROM includes a complete listing of, and hyperlinks to, all papers from IEEE Transactions on Information Theory since its inception in 1953.
