Course : Information Theory and Systems Course


    Course Elements


Information Theory was proposed by Claude E. Shannon in the year 1948. This theory studies the quantification, storage and communication of information. The key measure in Information Theory is entropy. It serves an important phenomenon in information management. The features of this course are:

• The overview and history of Information Theory and Systems.
• Working of Information Systems.
• Applications and implementations of Information Theory and Systems.
• Measure of Information Theory.


  • The Science of Information
  • Information Measures
  • The I-Measure
  • Zero-Error Data Compression
  • Weak Typicality
  • Strong Typicality
  • Discrete Memoryless Channels
  • Rate-Distortion Theory
  • The Blahut-Arimoto Algorithms
  • Differential Entropy
  • Continuous-Valued Channels
  • Markov Structures
  • Information Inequalities
  • Entropy and Groups
  • The Max-Flow Bound
  • Single-Source Linear Network Coding: Acyclic Networks
  • Multi-Source Network Coding


Information Theory is referred to any automated system or a manual one that is used for collection, process, transmission and dissemination of data or information to the user. The learning outcomes of this course are:

• Learning about the history of Information Theory and its systems
• Types of Information Systems
- Transaction Processing Systems
- Management Information Systems
- Decision Support
• Applications and Information Theory
• Concept of Entropy and its types.
• Practical Evaluation through examples.

I enrolled in this course with a very doubtful mind. But, today as I complete this course, I am hundred percent sure and happy that it was the right choice. I am happy to invest my money into such a fruitful course

By William ( November 8, 2013 )

I have finally found something really helpful and apt in information theory and systems topics. All of the information is useful and the features of information theory and systems are well elaborated.
