Students of electrical engineering or applied mathematics can find no clearer presentation of the principles of information theory than this excellent introduction. After explaining the nature of information theory and its problems, the author examines a variety of important topics: information theory of discrete systems; properties of continuous signals; ergodic ensembles and random noise; entropy of continuous distributions; the transmission of information in band-limited systems having a continuous range of values; an introduction to the use of signal space; information theory aspects of modulation and noise reduction; and linear correlation, filtering, and prediction. Numerous problems appear throughout the text, many with complete solutions. 1953 ed.
