Description: 2nd edition textbook on the subject, which can be ordered through the Web. A postscript file of contents is also available. The incompressibility method and Kolmogorov complexity is a versatile mathematical tool, a sharper relative of classical information theory (absolute information of individual object rather than average information over a random ensemble) that satisfies many of the laws of classical information theory - although with a slight error term.
