Data compression involves encoding information using fewer bits than the original representation. Mathematical Preliminaries for Lossless Compression Overview The treatment of data compression in this book is not very mathematical.

(For a more mathematical treatment of some of the topics covered - Selection from Introduction to Data Compression, 4th Edition [Book]. information theory works, and why it works in that way. This is entirely consistent with Shannon’s own approach. In a famously brief book, Shannon prefaced his account of information theory for continuous variables with these words: We will not attempt in the continuous case to obtain our results with the greatest generality, or with the extreme.

Information theory is a subfield of mathematics concerned with transmitting data across a noisy channel. A cornerstone of information theory is the idea of quantifying how much information there is in a message.

More generally, this can be used to quantify the information in an event and a random variable, called entropy, and is calculated using probability. Originally developed by Claude Shannon in the s, the theory of information laid the foundations for the digital revolution, and is now an essential tool in deep space communication, genetics, linguistics, data compression, and brain sciences.
