Shannon and Warren Weaver. The university of illinois press. The mathematical theory of the engineering aspects of com-munication, as developed chiefly by Claude Shannon at the Bell Telephone Laboratories, admittedly applies in the first instance only to problem A, namely, the technical problem of accuracy of transference of various types of signals from sender to receiver.

Warren Weaver, at present a consultant on scientific projects to the Sloan Foundation, has had a distinguished academic, government, and foundation career. Both authors have received numerous awards and honors.

A Mathematical Theory of Communication" is an article by mathematician Claude E. Shannon published in Bell System Technical Journal in 1948. It was renamed The Mathematical Theory of Communication in the 1949 book of the same name, a small but significant title change after realizing the generality of this work. The article was the founding work of the field of information theory

But it's certainly a seminal work. Had picked of some pieces of the thoughts in it over the years, thought it would be worth reading the original. Had to do some mental calisthenics to follow some parts. Glad to see Shannon getting more fo the credit he so richly deserves.

This is a classic which does not receive the attention it deserves. For an academic mathematical text it is very accessible. This work is if anything more important than Turing's paper "On Computable Numbers with Application to the Etscheidungsproblem", which famously described the concept of a stored program computer.

This is the seminal work that may be said to include the basic concepts, definitions and theorems of information and communication theory. This book does not need any praise because anybody who had even an introductory education in computer science or electronics of communication will have met the name of Shannon (if you haven't yet, please rush to Google and read his achievements).

The beauty of this edition is twofold. It includes two main parts. First part is by Weaver, and you don't need anything more than high school logic and algebra to understand the very clearly explained concepts. The second part by Shannon is 'the real thing' and for the mathematically educated reader, you need a fine grasp of probability theory, calculus, and a little bit of calculus of variations if you want to absorb all of the material.

To sum it up, if you want to really understand what entropy means in terms of information theory, then this is THE book for it. You'll also find very entertaining examples about the redundancy and entropy of the English language and how this relates to creating crossword puzzles in 2 dimension or 3 dimension.

You owe it to yourself to read this short book if you are a computer scientist, computer engineer or electronics engineer.

... but one must be seriously motivated to work through and understand this short book.

It's hard going for a general reader, but if you persist, you begin to get a rudimentary understanding, and a glimpse of what happens when science makes a breakthrough.

This is a classic text - the text on communications theory that started a revolution in digital communications. The original Bell System Technical Journal papers by Shannon are included, which give credit to the work of R.V.L. Hartley and Harry Nyquist. It is available freely on the web, but this small format book with Weaver's article is a gem.

It's exactly what you'd expect. A reprint of the paper.
Good stuff!
