    I never met Dr Mackay, but I used, and still use, his excellent textbook. I also enjoyed his internet lectures. I was shocked and saddened to read of his death. My deepest condolences to his family.

    David's Information Theory book is a classic, akin to Feynman's lectures on physics: rich in insight and he was so generous to have shared it with the world. It influenced me greatly.
