[According to Google’s Talk to Books]

“Information theory is a branch of applied mathematics providing a framework allowing the quantification of the information generated or transmitted through a communication channel.” from The Manual of Photography by Elizabeth Allen, Sophie Triantaphillidou

“Information theory is a mathematical theory dealing with highly precise aspects of the communication of information in terms of bits through well-defined channels. The theory of international politics developed in this volume is non-mathematical and non-precise.” from System and Process in International Politics by Morton A. Kaplan

“Information theory is a branch of science, mathematics, and engineering that studies information in a physical and mathematical context rather than a psychological framework.” from Assessing and Measuring Environmental Impact and Sustainability by Jiri J Klemes

“Information theory is the science of message transmission developed by Claude Shannon and other engineers at Bell Telephone Laboratories in the late 1940s. It provides a mathematical means of measuring information.” from The Creation Hypothesis: Scientific Evidence for an Intelligent Designer by James Porter Moreland

“Information theory is a branch of statistics and probability theory dealing with the study of data, ways to manipulate it (for instance, cryptography and compression) and communicate it (for instance, data transmissions and communication systems)”. from AI Game Development: Synthetic Creatures with Learning and Reactive Behaviors by Alex J. Champandard

“Information theory provides a means to quantify the complexity of information that can be used in the design of communication systems (Shannon 1948). It originated during World War II as a tool for assuring the successful transmission…” from Oceanography and Marine Biology: An Annual Review by R. N. Gibson, R. J. A. Atkinson, J. D. M. Gordon
