A primer on information theory, with applications to neuroscience
by Felix Effenberger
Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 58
This chapter is supposed to give a short introduction to the fundamentals of information theory; not only, but especially suited for people having a less firm background in mathematics and probability theory. Regarding applications, the focus will be on neuroscientific topics.

The book presents the strongest possible version of Gödel's incompleteness theorem, using an information-theoretic approach based on the size of computer programs. The author tried to present the material in the most direct fashion possible.

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.

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.

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.
