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.

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.
by Gregory J. Chaitin - World Scientic
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.
by Gregory J. Chaitin - Springer
This book presents the core of Chaitin's theory of program-size complexity, also known as algorithmic information theory. LISP is used to present the key algorithms and to enable computer users to interact with the author's proofs.
