This book provides a basic introduction to both information theory
and data compression. Although the two topics are related, this
unique treatment allows readers to explore either topic
independently. The authors' presentation of information theory is
pitched at an elementary level, making the book less daunting than
most other texts. The second edition includes a detailed history of
information theory that provides a solid background for the
quantification of the topic as developed by Claude Shannon. It also
covers the information rate of a code and the trade-off between
error correction and rate of information transmission,
probabilistic finite state source automata, and wavelet methods.
