Download e-book for iPad: A Mathematical Theory of Communication by Claude E. Shannon

By Claude E. Shannon

Scientific wisdom grows at a fantastic pace--but few books have had as lasting an influence or performed as very important a job in our sleek international as The Mathematical conception of Communication, released initially as a paper on communique idea within the Bell method Technical Journal greater than fifty years in the past. Republished in e-book shape presently thereafter, it has given that passed through 4 hardcover and 16 paperback printings. it's a progressive paintings, extraordinary in its foresight and contemporaneity. The college of Illinois Press is happy and commemorated to factor this commemorative reprinting of a classic.

New PDF release: Applied Proof Theory: Proof Interpretations and their Use in

Ulrich Kohlenbach provides an utilized type of facts concept that has led in recent times to new leads to quantity idea, approximation conception, nonlinear research, geodesic geometry and ergodic concept (among others). This utilized method is predicated on logical ameliorations (so-called facts interpretations) and issues the extraction of potent facts (such as bounds) from prima facie useless proofs in addition to new qualitative effects equivalent to independence of options from yes parameters, generalizations of proofs through removal of premises.

J. W. S. Cassels's An introduction to diophantine approximation PDF

This tract units out to offer a few concept of the elemental suggestions and of a few of the main notable result of Diophantine approximation. a range of theorems with entire proofs are awarded, and Cassels additionally presents an actual advent to every bankruptcy, and appendices detailing what's wanted from the geometry of numbers and linear algebra.

New PDF release: Automorphic Forms

Automorphic varieties are an incredible advanced analytic instrument in quantity idea and smooth mathematics geometry. They performed for instance an important position in Andrew Wiles's evidence of Fermat's final Theorem. this article presents a concise advent to the realm of automorphic kinds utilizing techniques: the vintage trouble-free conception and the trendy perspective of adeles and illustration concept.

BAND L IMITED E NSEMBLES OF F UNCTIONS If a function of time f t  is limited to the band from 0 to W cycles per second it is completely determined 1 by giving its ordinates at a series of discrete points spaced 2W seconds apart in the manner indicated by the 5 following result. Theorem 13: Let f t  contain no frequencies over W . Then ∞ f t  = ∑ Xn sin 2Wt , n 2W t , n ,∞ where Xn = f n 2W : 4 Communication theory is heavily indebted to Wiener for much of its basic philosophy and theory.

This is not possible if R1 C. The last statement in the theorem follows immediately from the definition of R1 and previous results. If it were not true we could transmit more than C bits per second over a channel of capacity C. The first part of the theorem is proved by a method analogous to that used for Theorem 11. We may, in the first place, divide the x y space into a large number of small cells and represent the situation as a discrete case. This will not change the evaluation function by more than an arbitrarily small amount (when the cells are very small) because of the continuity assumed for x y.

This work, although chiefly concerned with the linear prediction and filtering problem, is an important collateral reference in connection with the present paper. We may also refer here to Wiener’s Cybernetics (Wiley, 1948), dealing with the general problems of communication and control. 5 For a proof of this theorem and further discussion see the author’s paper “Communication in the Presence of Noise” published in the Proceedings of the Institute of Radio Engineers, v. 37, No. , 1949, pp. 10–21.
