Welcome to ELE 563!
This is a graduate-level introduction to the mathematics of Information
Theory, with emphasis on the modern aspects of non-asymptotics and information
spectrum methods. We will also discuss various connections/applications to computer science and statistics.
The syllabus is here.
We will use these lecture notes (updated Oct 2014) co-developed with Prof. Yury Polyanskiy at MIT. Handouts on new materials will be provided.
