An Introduction to Symbolic Dynamics and Codingby Douglas Lind, Brian Marcus
Pub. Date: 05/28/2003
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Although it originated as a method to study general dynamical systems, symbolic dynamics is useful in coding for data storage and transmission as well as in linear algebra. Requiring only a undergraduate knowledge of linear algebra, this first general textbook includes over 500 exercises.
