Shannon, Claude E(lwood)

(1916 --)

Mathematician and pioneer of communication theory, born in Gaylord, Michigan, USA. He studied at Michigan and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and in 1938 published a seminal paper on the application of symbolic logic to relay circuits, which helped transform circuit design from an art into a science. He worked at the Bell Telephone Laboratories (1941--72) in the area of information theory, and wrote The Mathematical Theory of Communication (1949) with Warren Weaver.
