Essential Coding Theory
by Venkatesan Guruswami, Atri Rudra, Madhu Sudan
Publisher: University at Buffalo 2014
Number of pages: 266
Description:
Error-correcting codes (henceforth, just codes) are clever ways of representing data so that one can recover the original information even if parts of it are corrupted. The basic idea is to judiciously introduce redundancy so that the original information can be recovered even when parts of the (redundant) data have been corrupted.

Network Coding Theory
by Raymond Yeung, S-Y Li, N Cai - Now Publishers Inc
A tutorial on the basics of the theory of network coding. It presents network coding for the transmission from a single source node, and deals with the problem under the more general circumstances when there are multiple source nodes.

Data Compression
- Wikibooks
Data compression is useful in some situations because 'compressed data' will save time (in reading and on transmission) and space if compared to the unencoded information it represent. In this book, we describe the decompressor first.

Quantum Information Theory
by Renato Renner - ETH Zurich
Processing of information is necessarily a physical process. It is not surprising that physics and the theory of information are inherently connected. Quantum information theory is a research area whose goal is to explore this connection.
