The Mathematical Theory of Information presents a new mathematical theory of information, built on a single powerful postulate: the Law of Diminishing Information. The concept of information is here, for the first time, defined mathematically by adding this postulate to the axioms of the probability theory. The Law of Diminishing Information is founded on a fusion of two fundamental ideas: Carnap and Bar-Hillel's `Ideal Receiver' and Shannon's `Noisy Channel'. The Law of Diminishing Information is applied to information technology, game theory, legislation, logic of research, algorithmic information, chaos theory, control engineering, medical tests, and biological evolution.
