Titles by This Author

This book develops a consistent macroscopic theory of electromagnetism and discusses the relation between circuit theory and filed theory. The theory is developed in successive steps from the Lorentz force, the integral form of Maxwell's equations in free space, and suitable macroscopic models of polarized and magnetized matter.

A Statistical Theory of Communication

A basic text on the theoretical foundations of information theory, for graduate students and engineers interested in electrical communications and for others seeking a general introduction to the field, with some important new material on tilting probability distributions and coding for discrete channels.
