Stapled wrappers, printed in grey, light blue, and black. 5 hole punched at the spine, as issued. The first separate edition. A bright clean copy. Very Good. Wraps. [28168]


This is the first Bell Telephone edition, published in the Bell Telephone System Technical Publications Monograph series, #1732. Previously published in Proceedings of the Institute of Radio Engineers, Vol 38, pp 417-425, April, 1950 (an IRE offprint does exist)

"The central results of the Wiener-Kolmogoroff smoothing and prediction theory for stationary time series are developed by a new method. The approach is motivated by physical considerations based on electric circuit theory and does not involved integral equations or the autocorrelation function...." (from the summary)

Provenance: From the files of Claude E. Shannon (unmarked).

Literature: Sloane and Wyner, "Claude Elwood Shannon Collected Papers" #51. Not in "Origins of Cyberspace."

COLLECTORS NOTE: The Bell System Monograph series is not an offprint series although it is often incorrectly referred to in this manner. It was rather a publication of Bell Telephone Laboratories used to widely distribute (primarily to libraries and large corporations) research articles written by Bell System employees in a variety of widely dispersed publications (including but certainly not limited to the Bell System Technical Journal). The series therefore represents a much broader selection of Bell System research than the Bell System Technical Journal did. Collectors prize this series as they are often (but not always) the first separate appearance of a paper and hence are the closest one can get to the elusive and ever sought after offprint.
