The Limits of Mathematics
by Gregory J. Chaitin
Publisher: Springer 2003
Number of pages: 270
This book is the final version of a course on algorithmic information theory and the epistemology of mathematics and physics. It discusses Einstein and Goedel's views on the nature of mathematics in the light of information theory, and sustains the thesis that mathematics is quasi-empirical.

The aim of this book is to develop 'from the ground up' many of the major developments in quantum Shannon theory. We study quantum mechanics for quantum information theory, we give important unit protocols of teleportation, super-dense coding, etc.

Network information theory deals with the fundamental limits on information flow in networks and optimal coding and protocols. These notes provide a broad coverage of key results, techniques, and open problems in network information theory.

The focus is on the mathematical theory of quantum information. We will begin with basic principles and methods for reasoning about quantum information, and then move on to a discussion of various results concerning quantum information.

This text discusses the theorems of Claude Shannon, starting from the source coding theorem, and culminating in the noisy channel coding theorem. Along the way we will study simple examples of codes for data compression and error correction.
