  • [Shannon48] C. Shannon, A Mathematical Theory of Communications, Bell Systems Technical Journal. 3, no. 27, (July 1948). [This is perhaps the most famous and seminal paper in the information sciences. In this paper, Shannon described the first practical syntactic information theory, which formed the basis for a vast array of developments in the information sciences from the design of computer instruction sets to the integrity of satellite communications and beyond. It is hard to overestimate the impact of this work.]
