This year, the world celebrates the 100th birthday of Claude Shannon. I just attended a workshop at Institut Henry Poincaré (IHP) in Paris that is related to the Shannon Centenary. On my way back, I stopped by Munich to visit the German Aerospace Center and the Huawei European Research Institute. In this seminar, I will give an abridged version of the tutorial I delivered at the IHP workshop on characterizations of Markov structures via information theory. I will also talk about various things I saw on my trip.
