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.

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.

Network information theory deals with the fundamental limits on information flow in networks and optimal coding and protocols. These notes provide a broad coverage of key results, techniques, and open problems in network information theory.

The book presents the strongest possible version of Gödel's incompleteness theorem, using an information-theoretic approach based on the size of computer programs. The author tried to present the material in the most direct fashion possible.
