About this Item: Menasha, WI: Institute of Radio Engineers, 1932. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 8vo, original grey printed wrappers (private library stamp on upper wrapper of October 1933 issue). A very good set, in the original wrappers, of Jansky’s seminal papers which initiated the field of radio astronomy, a new science that has become one of the essential methods for making modern astronomical observations. Working at Bell Labs, Jansky “was given the task of investigating factors that could interfere with radio waves used for long-distance communication. He designed a linear directional antenna, which, mounted on wheels from a Model T Ford, could scan the sky. He identified all the sources of interference, such as thunderstorms, except for one weak emission. This he found to be unconnected with the Sun and in 1931 he discovered that the radio interference came from the stars. Jansky published his findings in the Proceedings of the Institute of Radio Engineers in December 1932 [‘Directional Studies of Atmospherics at High Frequencies’], the date that marks precisely the beginnings of radio astronomy” (Biographical Encyclopedia of Scientists). Jansky’s follow-up paper, ‘Electrical Disturbances Apparently of Extraterrestrial Origin,’ published in 1933, was equally transformative, articulating “his revolutionary claim that the hiss static seemed to have its origin in our Milky Way galaxy, with a maximum in a direction that pointed close to the galactic center” (American National Biography). “At the age of just twenty-six, Karl Jansky had become the first person to detect and identify radio waves coming from outer space, a truly historic discovery. The true significance of Jansky’s breakthrough surpasses even the momentous discovery that the Milky Way emits radio waves. His accomplishment was to establish the science of radio astronomy and to demonstrate that astronomers could learn a huge amount about the universe by looking beyond the narrow band of electromagnetic wavelengths that are visible to the human eye . . . He announced his result in a paper entitled ‘Electrical Disturbances Apparently of Extraterrestrial Origin’.” (Simon Singh, Big Bang). The third paper in the collection, ‘Minimum Noise Levels Obtained on Short-Wave Radio Receiving Systems’ discusses problems of noise levels and interference in short-wave systems.

About this Item: Institute of Radio Engineers, New York, 1949. 1st Edition. TRUE FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL PRINTED WRAPS OF CLAUDE SHANNON'S MATHEMATICAL PROOF & REFINEMENT OF NYQUIST'S SAMPLING THEOREM (now Nyquist-Shannon), "THE BACKBONE OF MODERN COMMUNICATIONS" (Gran, Numerical Computing, 136). Following this publication, the paper appeared in Bell Telephone's Technical Publications. Shannon's paper, a manuscript first written in 1940 but held from publication until after WWII ended, "set the foundation of information theory. [It] is a masterpiece both in terms of achievement and conciseness. It is undoubtedly one of the theoretical works that has had the greatest impact on modern electrical engineering" (Unser, Sampling, 1). Note that we offer the Nyquist paper separately. An American mathematician and engineer, Claude Shannon is most often connected to the sampling theorem which bears his name. "Shannon is considered the father of information theory, which laid the foundation for digital communications and source compression, and ultimately, the information society as we know it" (Vetterli, Signal Processing, 498). The Nyquist-Shannon theorem is the principle by which engineers are able to digitize analog signals. In order that the analog-to-digital conversion produces a faithful reproduction of the original signal, slices - called samples - of the analog waves must be taken often, with the number taken per second known as the sampling rate. The samples are bridges that allow engineers to span analog signals (continuous) and digital signals (discrete). While working at Bell Labs in 1924, Harry Nyquist's work centered upon the obvious need to improve the speed with which data transmission was carried over the wires. Toward this end, Nyquist made two significant distinctions, one related to signal shaping and the second to the choice of codes (Norman). "The first is concerned with the best shape to be impressed on the transmitting medium so as to permit greater speed without undue interference either in the circuit under consideration or in those adjacent, while the latter deals with the choice of codes which will permit of transmitting a maximum amount of intelligence with a given number signal elements" (Nyquist, "Certain Factors?" BSTJ 3, 1924, p. 324). Nyquist's 1924 paper established the principles by which continuous signals could be converted into digital signals. "According to the Sampling Theorem, an analog signal must be sampled? at twice the frequency of its highest-frequency component to be converted into an adequate representation of the signal in digital form. Thus, the "Nyquist frequency" is the highest frequency that can be accurately sampled. It represents one-half of the sampling frequency. Adhering to the Nyquist Sampling Theorem ensures no lost data upon reconstruction in the analog domain" (Maliniak, Electronic Design, Oct. 20, 2005). Shannon's paper presented the first formal proof of the concepts the Nyquist theorem proposed. In order to convert an analog signal into a sequence of numbers, Shannon devised a geometric proof of the theorem that establishes the famous formula W log (1 + S) for the capacity of a channel with bandwidth W, additive thermal (i.e., Gaussian) noise, and signal-to-noise ratio S" (History of Science: The Wenner Collection). With this, he was able to show that if the interval between the intensity measurements is less than half the period of the highest frequency in the signal, it will then be possible to faithfully reconstruct the original signal from the digital values recorded (Shannon, 1949). CONDITION AND DETAILS: New York: Institute of Radio Engineers. 4to. No institutional stamps. Original printed wrappers with some rubbing at the front wrap and spine (see photos). The interior is pristine. Very good condition. Housed in an archival quality custom clamshell case, gilt-lettered at the spine. Seller Inventory # 964
