Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) Dr. von Neumann delivered lectures in December 1949 at Illinois University and in his 3rd lecture, “The Statistical Theory of Information”, he stated that Entropy in Information Theories should be a Thermodynamic concept as Boltzman developed. The entropy causes code errors in channel, which can be overcome logically by error correction coding. However, in the same lecture, he referred to Maxwell’s entropy, which is logarithmic of configuration number. It seems that these two concepts contradict. To date, his lectures have been very briefly introduced by MIT Press and the same was translated into Japanese by Iwanami.[1] [2] The author discovered the typewritten manuscripts at the U.S. Congress Library and would like to review how he explained.
