abstract = {The entire point of Shannon’s 1948 “A Mathematical Theory of Communication” was to study the theoretical limits on the transmission of information from point A (thesource) to point B (thereceiver) through an intervening medium (thechannel). The information (for example, a human voice signal from a microphone or the output signals from the buttons of a keyboard) is imagined first to be encoded in some manner before being sent through the channel. In “Mathematical Theory’’ Shannon considers two distinct types of channels: the socalledcontinuous channelthat would carry, for example, a continuous signal like the human voice,},
