Abstract:

The results of experimental studies performed in the last two years in the Laboratory of Information Transmission Systems are presented. This article describes the method of measuring the frequency distribution of message elements from various sources and adduces the results of measurement of frequency distribution which, in the case of certain sources, is carried to the level of 4th-order distributions. In appendices to this collection of articles there are provided tables of the functions necessary to compute the entropy of discrete distribution. Author
