Synopsis:

Entropy as a measure of uncertainty and its use to measure the amount of information. Possibilities of use of information access in various fields of science, engineering economics, etc. to solve specific problems.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

The concept of information and its interpretation.

Some historical approaches to quantification.

Study Objective:

The concept of information is now an essential communication tool in the world. In cybernetics was raised quantifier need "amount of information. A good approach to solving showed to be Entropy. This method became the basis for much wider application than originally intended, which is documented in a lecture.
