Elements of Information Theory
The latest edition of this classic is updated with new problem setsand material
The Second Edition of this fundamental textbook maintains thebook's tradition of clear, thought-provoking instruction. Readersare provided once again with an instructive mix of mathematics,physics, statistics, and information theory.
All the essential topics in information theory are covered indetail, including entropy, data compression, channel capacity, ratedistortion, network information theory, and hypothesis testing. Theauthors provide readers with a solid understanding of theunderlying theory and applications. Problem sets and a telegraphicsummary at the end of each chapter further assist readers. Thehistorical notes that follow each chapter recap the mainpoints.
The Second Edition features:
* Chapters reorganized to improve teaching
* 200 new problems
* New material on source coding, portfolio theory, and feedbackcapacity
* Updated references
Now current and enhanced, the Second Edition of Elements ofInformation Theory remains the ideal textbook for upper-levelundergraduate and graduate courses in electrical engineering,statistics, and telecommunications.
An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all theproblems in the book is available from the Wiley editorialdepartment.

This is a good book in general, but there are many places in this books that are not so self-explanatory. The authors do not explain. They probably think it is very obvious, but it might seems as obvious to the readers even with backgrounds.
