Information, Entropy and Their Geometric Structures
by Frederic Barbaresco, Ali Mohammad-Djafari
Publisher: MDPI AG 2015
Number of pages: 554
The aim of this book is to provide an overview of current work addressing this topic of research that explores the geometric structures of information and entropy. We hope that this vast survey on the geometric structure of information and entropy will motivate readers to go further and explore the emerging domain of 'Science of Information'.

The conditional rate-distortion function has proved useful in source coding problems involving the possession of side information. This book represents an early work on conditional rate distortion functions and related theory.

This text discusses the theorems of Claude Shannon, starting from the source coding theorem, and culminating in the noisy channel coding theorem. Along the way we will study simple examples of codes for data compression and error correction.

The book covers the theory of probabilistic information measures and application to coding theorems for information sources and noisy channels. This is an up-to-date treatment of traditional information theory emphasizing ergodic theory.
by Gregory J. Chaitin - World Scientific
In this mathematical autobiography, Gregory Chaitin presents a technical survey of his work and a non-technical discussion of its significance. The technical survey contains many new results, including a detailed discussion of LISP program size.
