Download and read online A Sociological Theory of Communication in PDF and EPUB Networks of communication evolve in terms of reflexive exchanges. The codification of these reflections in language, that is, at the social level, can be considered as the operating system of society. Under sociologically specifiable conditions, the discursive reconstructions can be expected to make the systems under reflection increasingly knowledge-intensive. This sociological theory of communication is founded in a tradition that includes Giddens' (1979) structuration theory, Habermas' (1981) theory of communicative action, and Luhmann's (1984) proposal to consider social systems as self-organizing. The study also elaborates on Shannon's (1948) mathematical theory of communication for the formalization and operationalization of the non-linear dynamics. The development of scientific communications can be studied using citation analysis. The exchange media at the interfaces of knowledge production provide us with the evolutionary model of a Triple Helix of university-industry-government relations. The construction of the European Information Society can then be analyzed in terms of interacting networks of communication. The issues of sustainable development and the expectation of social change are discussed in relation to the possibility of a general theory of communication. REVIEW In this book, LoetLeydesdorff sets out to answer the question, "Can society be considered as a self-organizing (autopoietic) system. In the process, Leydesdorff, develops a general sociological theory of communication, as well as a special theory of scientific communication designed to analyze complex systems such as the Euroean Information Society.

Download and read online The Mathematical Theory of Information in PDF and EPUB The Mathematical Theory of Information presents a new mathematical theory of information, built on a single powerful postulate: the Law of Diminishing Information. The concept of information is here, for the first time, defined mathematically by adding this postulate to the axioms of the probability theory. The Law of Diminishing Information is founded on a fusion of two fundamental ideas: Carnap and Bar-Hillel's `Ideal Receiver' and Shannon's `Noisy Channel'. The Law of Diminishing Information is applied to information technology, game theory, legislation, logic of research, algorithmic information, chaos theory, control engineering, medical tests, and biological evolution. In physics, both the Second Law of Thermodynamics and Schrödinger's wave function are derived from the Law of Diminishing Information. Conventional information theory, that of telecommunications, is analyzed as a special case, and eight conditions for its applicability are listed. The reader will get the essential ideas to understand and use the concept of information. The Mathematical Theory of Information is suitable as a textbook in general information theory for students of technical, scientific, and mathematical subjects. The book is ideal as a supplementary textbook in traditional courses on telecommunications information theory at all levels. The website of the book is www.matheory.info.

Download and read online The Mathematical Theory of Nonblocking Switching Networks in PDF and EPUB The first edition of this book covered in depth the mathematical theory of nonblocking multistage interconnecting networks, which is applicable to both communication and computer networks. This comprehensively updated version puts more emphasis to the multicast and multirate networks which are under fast development recently due to their wide applications. This comprehensively updated new edition not only introduces the classical theory of the fundamental point-to-point network but also has a renewed emphasis on the latest multicast and multirate networks. The book can serve as either a one- or two-semester textbook for graduate students of information science, (electronic) communications, and applied mathematics. In addition, as all the relevant literature is organized and evaluated under one structured framework, the volume is an essential reference for researchers in those areas.
