Description:
Algorithmic information theory studies description complexity and randomness and is now a well known field of theoretical computer science and mathematical logic. This report covers the basic notions of algorithmic information theory: Kolmogorov complexity (plain, conditional, prefix), Solomonoff universal a priori probability, notions of randomness, effective Hausdorff dimension.

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.
