Since the main principles of applied information theory were formulated in the 1940s, the science has been greatly developed and today its areas of application range from traditional communication engineering problems to humanities and the arts. Interdisciplinary in scope, this book is a single-source reference for all applications areas, including engineering, radar, computing technology, television, the life sciences (including biology, physiology and psychology) and arts criticism. A review of the current state of information theory is provided; the author also presents several generalized and original results, and gives a treatment of various problems. This is a reference for both specialists and non-professionals in information theory and general cybernetics.
