Abstract

The present work is the third in a series designed to clarify the issues relating to the concept of information. The ultimate aim of these travails is to help develop a science of information. The first book, Information and the Internal Structure of the Universe, defined information in a manner parallel to the definitions which apply to energy: information, like energy, is conceived of as a basic property of the universe; and like energy, which is traditionally defined operationally as possessing the capacity to perform work, so information is defined operationally as possessing the capacity to organize a system.
