Introduction -- Rudolf Ahlswede : from 60 to 66 -- Information theory and some friendly neighbors: ein Wunschkonzert -- Probabilistic models -- Cryptology, pseudo random sequences -- Quantum models -- -- Information measures, error concepts, performance criteria -- Search, sorting, ordering, planning -- Language evolution, pattern discovery, reconstructions -- Network coding -- Combinatorial models -- Problem section -- Special issue of Discrete applied mathematics [contents] -- Levon H.

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed research papers contributed to a research project on the `General Theory of Information Transfer and Combinatorics' that was hosted from 2001-2004 at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZIF) of Bielefeld University and also papers of several incorporated meetings thereof. The 63 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in the book. The papers are organized in topical sections on probabilistic models, cryptology, pseudo random sequences, quantum models, statistics, probability theory, information measures, error concepts, performance criteria, search, sorting, ordering, planning, language evolution, pattern discovery, reconstructions, network coding, combinatorial models, and a problem section.
