## Information Theory: 50 Years of DiscoverySergio Verdú, Steven W. McLaughlin, IEEE Information Theory Society "In 1948 Claude Shannon published the paper that single-handedly started the field of information theory, ""The Mathematical Theory of Communication."" This groundbreaking paper 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. Compiled by the editors of the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, these articles have been written by leaders in the field, providing insightful introductions and useful summaries of 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 comes complete with a CD-ROM that includes the author, subject, and transaction indexes of the IEEE Transactions in Information Theory Digital Library. The CD-ROM also includes a complete listing of, and hyperlinks to, all papers from IEEE Transactions on Information Theory since its inception in 1953."
