Elements of Information Theory, Second Edition, covers the standard topics of information theory, such as entropy, data compression, channel capacity, rate distortion, multi-user theory and hypothesis testing. It presents applications to communications, statistics, complexity theory, and investment. Chapters 1-9 cover the asymptotic equipartition property, data compression, and channel capacity culminating in the capacity of the Gaussian channel. Chapters 10-17 include rate distortion, the method of types, Kolmogorov complexity, network information theory, universal source coding, and…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
Elements of Information Theory, Second Edition, covers the standard topics of information theory, such as entropy, data compression, channel capacity, rate distortion, multi-user theory and hypothesis testing. It presents applications to communications, statistics, complexity theory, and investment. Chapters 1-9 cover the asymptotic equipartition property, data compression, and channel capacity culminating in the capacity of the Gaussian channel. Chapters 10-17 include rate distortion, the method of types, Kolmogorov complexity, network information theory, universal source coding, and portfolio theory.

The first edition of this book is the most successful book on information theory on the market today. Adoptions have remained strong since the book's publication in 1991.
The latest edition of this classic is updated with new problem sets and material The Second Edition of this fundamental textbook maintains the book's tradition of clear, thought-provoking instruction. Readers are provided once again with an instructive mix of mathematics, physics, statistics, and information theory. All the essential topics in information theory are covered in detail, including entropy, data compression, channel capacity, rate distortion, network information theory, and hypothesis testing. The authors provide readers with a solid understanding of the underlying theory and applications. Problem sets and a telegraphic summary at the end of each chapter further assist readers. The historical notes that follow each chapter recap the main points. The Second Edition features: * Chapters reorganized to improve teaching * 200 new problems * New material on source coding, portfolio theory, and feedback capacity * Updated references Now current and enhanced, the Second Edition of Elements of Information Theory remains the ideal textbook for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in electrical engineering, statistics, and telecommunications.

Rezensionen
"As expected, the quality of exposition continues to be a high point of the book. Clear explanations, nice graphical illustrations, and illuminating mathematical derivations make the book particularly useful as a textbook on information theory." (Journal of the American Statistical Association, March 2008)

"This book is recommended reading, both as a textbook and as a reference." (Computing Reviews.com, December 28, 2006)
