  • Shows the significance of the connection between information and entropy
  • Provides vital materials that can help develop more efficient communication and processing technology
  • Promotes the research and development of high-speed and large-capacity information systems
  • Includes examples of optical computing, pattern recognition, wavelet transforms, side-looking radar imaging, time, and enigma of space


This book shows there is a profound connection between information and entropy. Without this connection, information would be more difficult to apply to science. This book covers the connection and the application to modern optics and radar imaging. It shows that there exists a profound relationship between Einstein’s relativity theory and Schröinger’s quantum mechanics, by means of the uncertainty principle. In due of the uncertainty relation, this book shows that every bit of information takes time and energy to transfer, to create and to observe. The new edition contains 3 new chapters on radar imaging with optics, science in the myth of information, and time and the enigma of space.
