Abstract
Information theory "measures quantity of information" and is that branch of applied mathematics that deals with the efficient transmission of messages in an encoded language. It is fundamental to modern methods of telecommunication, image compression, and security. Its relation to library information science is less direct. More relevant to the LIS conception of "quantity of information" are economic concepts related to the expected value of a decision, and the influence of imperfect information on that expected value.
