Landauer's Principle as a Consequence of the Shannon-Hartley Theorem

Authors: Vladimir Aksayskiy

Communication and information in the world of black bodies. The message, in contrast to the information, obeys the Landauer principle, according to which any generator, transmitter, and receiver of a message is a source of thermal radiation, which in the case of electromagnetic communication is conveniently considered in terms of the Planck black body model. In this case, the Shannon-Hartley theorem leads to the well-known formulation of the Landauer principle.
