The subject of Information Theory looks really interesting to me:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information_theory My question is how much do I need to know to learn it on a more than superficial level? I have a good deal of undergraduate math, notable gaps being abstract algebra, differential equations, and complex variables. Also can anyone recommend a good starting text?
