  • Cipher [r]: A means of combining plaintext (of letters or numbers, or bits), using an algorithm that mathematically manipulates the individual elements of plaintext, into ciphertext, a form unintelligible to any recipient that does not know both the algorithm and a randomizing factor called a cryptographic key [e]
  • Claude Shannon [r]: (1916-2001) A theoretical mathematician and electrical engineer, one of the foundational researchers in computer and communications design. [e]
  • Communication [r]: The set of interactive processes that create shared meaning. [e]
  • Compression (disambiguation) [r]: Add brief definition or description
  • Computer network [r]: A collection of computers or digital devices ("nodes") connected by communication links. [e]
  • Computer science [r]: The study of how computers work, and the algorithms, data structures and design principles used in their operation and programming. [e]
  • Cryptanalysis [r]: The sub-field of cryptology which deals with breaking into existing codes and ciphers. [e]
  • Cryptography [r]: A field at the intersection of mathematics and computer science that is concerned with the security of information, typically the confidentiality, integrity and authenticity of some message. [e]
  • Cryptology [r]: The theory and practice of protecting the content of communications, and of defeating the protective measures [e]
  • Electrical engineering [r]: The branch of engineering that deals primarily with electricity and electromagnetism. [e]
  • History of computing [r]: How electronic computers were first invented; how the technology underlying them evolved. [e]
  • James Clerk Maxwell [r]: (1831 – 1879) Scottish physicist best known for his formulation of electromagnetic theory and the statistical theory of gases. [e]
  • Library science [r]: The study of issues related to libraries and the information fields. [e]
  • MPEG-1 [r]: One of the earliest practical standards for high quality, low bitrate audio and video compression; includes the MP3 audio format. [e]
  • Mathematics [r]: The study of quantities, structures, their relations, and changes thereof. [e]
  • Philosophy of science [r]: Philosophical study of the assumptions, foundations, and implications of science. [e]
  • Psycholinguistics [r]: Study of the psychological and neurobiological factors that enable humans to acquire, use, comprehend and produce language. [e]
  • Signal processing [r]: Extraction of information from complex signals in the presence of noise, generally by conversion of the signals into digital form followed by analysis using various algorithms. [e]
  • Signal-to-noise ratio [r]: A dimensionless number expressing the proportion of useful signal in a communications channel, the remaining content being noise. The higher the ratio, the better the quality. [e]
