Quantum Information Theory
by Renato Renner
Publisher: ETH Zurich 2015
Number of pages: 187
Description:
The storage and processing of information is necessarily a physical process. It is not surprising that physics and the theory of information are inherently connected. Quantum information theory is an interdisciplinary research area whose goal is to explore this connection.

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.

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.
