General Survey of the Mathematical Model for a Communication Channel
Information Theory is concerned with the generation, transmission and processing of certain quantities which are assumed to represent in some way an “amount of information”. Of course a definition of “information” in general terms is by no means obvious, but since Information Theory has developed mostly in a precise though restricted direction, it is always possible to make reference to a well-determined meaning of “information”. Such a meaning, originated from the pioneering work of C.E. Shannon  , is primarily concerned with the transmission problems, and has a statistical, or probabilistic character, which makes that modern branch of Communication Theory which embodies Information Theory be called Statistical Communication Theory
