Hello all!

I'm interested in random numbers (including and especially creating

random numbers in a specific statistical distribution) and information

theory (e.g. Shannon Entropy). What books and articles would you

recommend reading to begin to get up to speed on these topics? [I like

math and have a modicum of experience with some higher maths, so it need

not be for the layperson. In fact, a rigorous theoretical/mathematical

treatment is what I'm hoping to get in the end.]

Thank you very much for your assistance.

Sincerely,

Joseph (aka Giuseppe Verde)
