**A Mathematical Theory of Communication**

by Claude Shannon

1948**Number of pages**: 79

**Description**:

The person who wrote this paper is the father of modern communication theory, Claude Shannon. In this seminal work Shannon presents results that were previously found nowhere else, and today many professors refer to it as the best exposition still on the subject of the mathematical limits on communication (such as bandwidth). Further, it laid the modern foundations for what is now coined Information Theory. Classic work.
