A First Course in Information Theory, Hardback Book


This book provides an up-to-date introduction to information theory.

In addition to the classical topics discussed, it provides the first comprehensive treatment of the theory of I-Measure, network coding theory, Shannon and non-Shannon type information inequalities, and a relation between entropy and group theory.

ITIP, a software package for proving information inequalities, is also included.

With a large number of examples, illustrations, and original problems, this book is excellent as a textbook or reference book for a senior or graduate level course on the subject, as well as a reference for researchers in related fields.
