He’s met almost everyone else: Wiener, Bode, Bellman, Carnot, Tesla, Marconi, and of course, Shortz. Bad jokes aside, in an attempt to understand the inverse water filling solution from ratedistortion theory better, I put together some rough notes attempting to connect it and the sampling theorem. It’s kind of old school but makes an interesting exercise for students of information theory and signal processing. There are almost certainly places in the notes where the descriptions could be stated better, and I haven’t thoroughly scrubbed it for typos, so any feedback is both welcomed and encouraged.
