Key Papers in The Development of Coding Theory, Edited by: Elwyn R Berlekamp
This volume is a collection of reprints of original papers in coding theory, with a few short notes and comments inserted by the Editor. This volume and a complementary volume on the Shannon theory, edited by D Slepian, were both compiled at the invitation of the Administrative Committee of the IEEE Group on Information Theory under the leadership of its 1972 President, T. M. Cover. These two volumes will help to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Shannon's classic paper.
