CLAUDE SHANNON Claude Shannon (1916 ). TABLE OF CONTENTS. Claim to Fame Claude Shannon is an applied mathematician who is considered the father of Information Theory. http://www.sis.pitt.edu/~mbsclass/hall_of_fame/shannon.htm
Extractions: C laim to Fame Claude Shannon is an applied mathematician who is considered the father of Information Theory. He published a paper with Warren Weaver called, A Mathematical Theory of Communication, in the Bell System Technical Journal. This is the basis of what is called Information Theory, the underpinning theory that has been responsible for all electronic communications since 1948. Satellite uplinks, compact disks, long distance phone calls, telenetting, etc. were all made possible from the understanding of entropy (measurement of disorder), which was laid out in Shannon's paper. Claude Shannon also contributed greatly to the beginnings of computers. In his Master's Thesis at MIT in 1937, Shannon researched the possible use of electronic circuits that would mimic logical statements. This research which is a combination of Boolean Algebra and Electrical Engineering, showed how electrical switches could be made to follow procedures and produce calculations, much like the way electronic computers work today.

Wyner, is one of two biographies of Claude Shannon that appears in the book we edited, Shannon's Collected Papers Claude Elwood Shannon was born in Petoskey, Michigan, on Sunday, April 30, 1916. His father, Claude Sr. (1862-1934), a descendant of early New Jersey settlers, was a businessman and, for a period, Judge of Probate. His mother, Mabel Wolf Shannon (1880-1945), daughter of German immigrants, was a language teacher and for a number of years Principal of Gaylord High School, in Gaylord, Michigan. The first sixteen years of Shannon's life were spent in Gaylord, where he attended the Public School, graduating from Gaylord High School in 1932. As a boy, Shannon showed an inclination toward things mechanical. His best subjects in school were science and mathematics, and at home he constructed such devices as model planes, a radio-controlled model boat and a telegraph system to a friend's house half a mile away. The telegraph made opportunistic use of two barbed wires around a nearby pasture. He earned spending money from a paper route and delivering telegrams, as well as repairing radios for a local department store. His childhood hero was Edison, who he later learned was a distant cousin. Both were descendants of John Ogden, an important colonial leader and the ancestor of many distinguished people. Shannon's recent hero list, without deleting Edison, includes more academic types such as Newton, Darwin, Einstein and Von Neumann.

Extractions: Claude E Shannon 's father was also named Claude Elwood Shannon and his mother was Mabel Catherine Wolf. Shannon was a graduate of the University of Michigan, being awarded a degree in mathematics and electrical engineering in 1936. Although he had not been outstanding in mathematics, he then went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he obtained a Master's Degree in electrical engineering and his Ph.D. in mathematics in 1940. Shannon wrote a Master's thesis A Symbolic Analysis of Relay and Switching Circuits on the use of Boole 's algebra to analyse and optimise relay switching circuits. His doctoral thesis was on population genetics. At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology he also worked on the differential analyser, an early type of mechanical computer developed by Vannevar Bush for obtaining numerical solutions to ordinary differential equations . Shannon published Mathematical theory of the differential analyzer in 1941. In the introduction to the paper he writes:-

(This photograph is also available at higher resolution for use in print reproduction.) Murray Hill, N.J. (Feb. 26, 2001) Claude Elwood Shannon, the mathematician who laid the foundation of modern information theory while working at Bell Labs in the 1940s, died on Saturday. He was 84. Shannon's theories are as relevant today as they were when he first formulated them. "It was truly visionary thinking," said Arun Netravali, president of Lucent Technologies' Bell Labs. "As if assuming that inexpensive, high-speed processing would come to pass, Shannon figured out the upper limits on communication rates. First in telephone channels, then in optical communications, and now in wireless, Shannon has had the utmost value in defining the engineering limits we face." In 1948 Shannon published his landmark A Mathematical Theory of Communication . He begins this pioneering paper on information theory by observing that "the fundamental problem of communication is that of reproducing at one point either exactly or approximately a message selected at another point." He then proceeds to so thoroughly establish the foundations of information theory that his framework and terminology remain standard.

Extractions: This entry contributed by Rethnakaran Pulikkoonattu American mathematician and father of information theory . Claude Elwood Shannon was born in Gaylord, Michigan on April 30, 1916 to Claude Elwood and Mabel Wolf Shannon. Shannon's father Claude, was a judge in Gaylord, a small town with a population of about three thousand, and his mother Mabel was the principal of the local high school. Although he didn't work in the field of mathematics, Shannon proved to be mathematically precocious. Although there was not much scientific influence from Shannon's father, he received scientific encouragement from his grandfather, who was an inventor and a farmer whose inventions included the washing machine and farming machinery. While at MIT, Shannon studied with both Wiener and Bush. Noted as a 'tinkerer,' he was ideally suited to working on the Differential Analyzer, and would set it up to run equations for other scientists. At Bush's suggestion, Shannon also studied the operation of the analyzer's relay circuits for his master's thesis. This analysis formed the basis for Shannon's influential 1938 paper "A Symbolic Analysis of Relay and Switching Circuits," in which he put forth his developing theories on the relationship of symbolic logic to relay circuits. This paper, and the theories it contained, would have a seminal impact on the development of information processing machines and systems in the years to come.

Extractions: In 1936, graduate student Claude Shannon arrived at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In the best tradition of grad. students, Shannon was short of money, and happy to be recruited by his professor, Vannevar Bush , to tend the unwieldy entrails of Bush's mechanical computing device - the Differential Analyser. The Differential Analyser, while a marvel of scientific engineering for its time, was a lot of hard work to maintain. Basically an assembly of shafts and gears, the gears themselves had to be manually configured to specific ratios before any problem could be fed to the machine - a boring, laborious (and extremely messy) business. ("I had to kind of, you know, fix [it] from time to time to keep it going".) Encouraged by Bush to base his master's thesis on the logical operation of the Differential Analyser, Shannon inevitably considered ways of improving it, perhaps by using electrical circuits instead of the present cumbersome collection of mechanical parts. Not long afterwards, it dawned on Shannon that the
Shannon's Work The significance of shannon's Work. claude shannon's creation in the 1940's of the subject of information theory and ergodic theory, and shannon's mathematics is in its own right http://cm.bell-labs.com/cm/ms/what/shannonday/work.html
Extractions: Claude Shannon's creation in the 1940's of the subject of information theory is arguably one of the great intellectual achievements of the twentieth century. Information theory has had an important and significant influence on mathematics, particularly on probability theory and ergodic theory, and Shannon's mathematics is in its own right a considerable and profound contribution to pure mathematics. But Shannon did his work primarily in the context of communication engineering, and it is in this area that it stands as a unique monument. In his classical paper of 1948 and its sequels, he formulated a model of a communication system that is distinctive for its generality as well as for its amenability to mathematical analysis. He formulated the central problems of theoretical interest, and gave a brilliant and elegant solution to these problems. We preface this section of his collected works with a very short description of this pioneering work. Let us look first at his model. Shannon saw the communication process as essentially stochastic in nature. The semantic meaning of information plays no role in the theory. In the Shannon paradigm, information from a "source" (defined as a stochastic process) must be transmitted though a "channel" (defined by a transition probability law relating the channel output to the input). The system designer is allowed to place a device called an "encoder" between the source and channel which can introduce a fixed though finite (coding) delay. A "decoder" can be placed at the output of the channel. The theory seeks to answer questions such as how rapidly or reliably can the information from the source be transmitted over the channel, when one is allowed to optimize with respect to the encoder/decoder?
