From Classical to Quantum Shannon Theory
by Mark M. Wilde

Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 663

The aim of this book is to develop 'from the ground up' many of the major developments in the general area of study known as quantum Shannon theory. As such, we spend a significant amount of time on quantum mechanics for quantum information theory, we give a careful study of the important unit protocols of teleportation, super-dense coding, and entanglement distribution, and we develop many of the tools necessary for understanding information transmission or compression.

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.
Algorithmic Information TheoryAlgorithmic Information Theory
by Peter D. Gruenwald, Paul M.B. Vitanyi - CWI
We introduce algorithmic information theory, also known as the theory of Kolmogorov complexity. We explain this quantitative approach to defining information and discuss the extent to which Kolmogorov's and Shannon's theory have a common purpose.
A Short Course in Information TheoryA Short Course in Information Theory
by David J. C. MacKay - University of Cambridge
This text discusses the theorems of Claude Shannon, starting from the source coding theorem, and culminating in the noisy channel coding theorem. Along the way we will study simple examples of codes for data compression and error correction.
