A primer on information theory, with applications to neuroscience
by Felix Effenberger
Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 58
This chapter is supposed to give a short introduction to the fundamentals of information theory; not only, but especially suited for people having a less firm background in mathematics and probability theory. Regarding applications, the focus will be on neuroscientific topics.

by Gregory J. Chaitin - Springer
This book presents the core of Chaitin's theory of program-size complexity, also known as algorithmic information theory. LISP is used to present the key algorithms and to enable computer users to interact with the author's proofs.

A tutorial on the basics of the theory of network coding. It presents network coding for the transmission from a single source node, and deals with the problem under the more general circumstances when there are multiple source nodes.
by Abbas El Gamal, Young-Han Kim - arXiv
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.
by Claude Shannon
Shannon presents results previously found nowhere else, and today many professors refer to it as the best exposition on the subject of the mathematical limits on communication. It laid the modern foundations for what is now coined Information Theory.
