From Classical to Quantum Shannon Theory
by Mark M. Wilde
Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 663
Description:
The aim of this book is to develop 'from the ground up' many of the major developments in the general area of study known as quantum Shannon theory. As such, we spend a significant amount of time on quantum mechanics for quantum information theory, we give a careful study of the important unit protocols of teleportation, super-dense coding, and entanglement distribution, and we develop many of the tools necessary for understanding information transmission or compression.

A Short Course in Information Theory
by David J. C. MacKay - University of Cambridge
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.

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.
