Error-Correction Coding and Decoding
by Martin Tomlinson, et al.
Publisher: Springer 2017
Number of pages: 522
This book discusses both the theory and practical applications of self-correcting data, commonly known as error-correcting codes. The applications included demonstrate the importance of these codes in a wide range of everyday technologies, from smartphones to secure communications and transactions.

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.
by Claude Shannon
Shannon presents results previously found nowhere else, and today many professors refer to it as the best exposition on the subject of the mathematical limits on communication. It laid the modern foundations for what is now coined Information Theory.

This chapter is supposed to give a short introduction to the fundamentals of information theory, especially suited for people having a less firm background in mathematics and probability theory. The focus will be on neuroscientific topics.
by Robert M. Gray - Springer
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.
