Encyclopedia Britannica's says that "the chief concern of information theory is to discover mathematical laws governing systems designed to communicate or manipulate information. It sets up quantitative measures of information and of the capacity of various systems to transmit, store, and otherwise process information. Some of the problems treated are related to finding the best methods of
using various available communication systems and the best methods for separating the wanted information, or signal, from the extraneous information, or noise".
The study of information theory is also concerned with the definition of notion of information in a
general sense and with a unified information theory that is supposed to contain all the statements of existing information theories.
Information theory has had a pervasive influence on a wide array of disciplines. Therefore, submissions to this category need not be directly related to information theory, though the influence of information theory on the submitted site should be clear.
Departments at institutes of higher education which focus on information theory.
The submitted department must have some clear association with information theory.
Conferences in Mathematical Information Theory
Journals, both electronic and print, relating to Information Theory.
Individual papers relevant to Information Theory.
Papers must be relevant to information theory.
Scientists who took part in development of this branch of science.
Research groups in mathematical Information Theory.
Professional societies committed to research in information theory.
Only relevant societies will be included: it should be clear that the organization is somewhat involved in information theory research.
