Network information theory deals with the fundamental limits on information flow in networks and optimal coding techniques and protocols that achieve these limits. This set of lecture notes aims to provide a broad coverage of key results, techniques, and open problems in network information theory.

The aim of this book is to develop 'from the ground up' many of the major developments in quantum Shannon theory. We study quantum mechanics for quantum information theory, we give important unit protocols of teleportation, super-dense coding, etc.

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 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.
