Logic and Information
by Keith Devlin
Publisher: ESSLLI 2001
ISBN/ASIN: 0521499712
Description:
An introductory, comparative account of three mathematical approaches to information: the classical quantitative theory of Claude Shannon, developed in the 1940s and 50s, a quantitative-based, qualitative theory developed by Fred Dretske in the 1970s, and a qualitative theory introduced by Jon Barwise and John Perry in the early 1980s and pursued by Barwise, Israel, Devlin, Seligman and others in the 1990s.

Essential Coding Theory
by Venkatesan Guruswami, Atri Rudra, Madhu Sudan - University at Buffalo
Error-correcting codes are clever ways of representing data so that one can recover the original information even if parts of it are corrupted. The basic idea is to introduce redundancy so that the original information can be recovered ...

Data Compression
- Wikibooks
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.
