Books on information theory

Last update: Fri Sep 22 20:49:19 EDT 2017


Luc's library has now opened its web doors to all McGill University students. The library is in fact my office (room 300N, McConnell Engineering Building), and the books are a subset of my private collection. Any McGill student may borrow any book at any time!
