This book contains two papers written by Khinchin on the concept of entropy in probability theory and Shannon’s first and second theorems in information theory – with detailed modern proofs. Share your thoughts with other customers.

Dodecahedron marked it as to-read Jul 07, We point out that whole formalisms of o mechanics can be rewritten in terms of Shannon entropy. Overall, a great summary of the mathematics behind the subject, and lucid enough for a reader without much background to get a clear picture of what the field is about by the time they’ve read it through.

Raju Mundru rated it it was amazing Feb 23, Like William Feller and Richard Feynman he combines a complete mastery of his subject with an ability to explain clearly without sacrificing mathematical rigour. Information Theory, Part I: Khinchin’s work is very rigorous and thorough, albeit a bit dry and scarce on intuition I believe the assumption is that most readers will already have an intuitive understanding of the theorems, but as I went in “blind,” as it were, this slowed me down a fair bit.

See all 7 reviews. I knew it was time to go back to school when I was so desperate for some kind of analytical thought that I found this in a used bookstore in Somerville and read it cover to cover. By means of entropy, the configurational order of complex systems can be exactly quantified.

This is rather interesting and surprizing for EE students and scholars. Joe Antognini marked it as to-read Aug 19,
