A Mathematical Theory of Communication
by Claude Shannon
1948
Number of pages: 79
Description:
The person who wrote this paper is the father of modern communication theory, Claude Shannon. In this seminal work Shannon presents results that were previously found nowhere else, and today many professors refer to it as the best exposition still on the subject of the mathematical limits on communication (such as bandwidth). Further, it laid the modern foundations for what is now coined Information Theory. Classic work.

Conditional Rate Distortion Theory
by Robert M. Gray - Information Systems Laboratory
The conditional rate-distortion function has proved useful in source coding problems involving the possession of side information. This book represents an early work on conditional rate distortion functions and related theory.

Data Compression
- Wikibooks
Data compression is useful in some situations because 'compressed data' will save time (in reading and on transmission) and space if compared to the unencoded information it represent. In this book, we describe the decompressor first.
