Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue focuses on contributions based on Shannon's information concepts applied to problems in communications and networking.

When Shannon introduced his version of "entropy" and the related concept of "mutual information", he had problems in electrical communication in mind. Since then his theory has found a wide range of applications also outside the central field of telecommunications. The goal of this special issue is however to provide a modern view on problems in communications and networking, and the use of Shannon's notions to understand and characterize fundamental opportunities and limitations.

Prospective contributions should consider theory and problems motivated by the wide area of communications and networking. Shannon's original concepts of entropy and/or mutual information should be of central importance.
