On Shannon’s Formula and Hartley’s Rule: Beyond the Mathematical Coincidence

Abstract :

Chapter 1 of the book is a historical review of the origins of thermodynamics and information theory: [...]
Olivier Rioul and José Carlos Magossi then detail the history of the discovery of the Shannon’s formula for Gaussian channel, with seminal Hartley’s rule twenty years before Shannon for uniform channel, and the first published work in April 1948 of the French engineer, Jacques Laplume from Radar/Hyper Department of Thomson-Houston, among others.
