The two great accomplishments of contemporary physics, the relativity theory and the quantum theory, are both associated with information, the former with speed of transmission (Section 13.2), the latter with accuracy (Section 14.1). In this chapter we will concentrate on relativity. Hence, we will discuss information chains and the timing of signals, disregarding the measure used to estimate the amount of information.
