A Mathmematical Model of Communication

Logo for A Mathmematical Model of Communication
This is the seminal article describing C. E. Shannon's mathematical model of Communication, originally printed in the Bell Systems Technical Journal in 1948. This is the original source for the standard Source-Message-Channel-Receiver (SMCR) model of communication frequently used in the analysis of speech and media communication. Speech students will be surprised by the amount of math in this landmark work in their field.
