In no particular order:
Caltech Communications Group
in the Electrical Engineering Department at Caltech.
Information Systems Laboratory
in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford.
Information Theory Research Group
in the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Minnesota.
in the Department of Computer Science, University of Waikato, New Zealand.
Information and Communication Theory Group
in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the
Eindhoven University of Technology.
ODIN Communications Group
(in dutch) at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven.
Information Theory Group
at the Technical University of Budapest.
Santa Fe Institute
sponsors research on complex systems.
(Laboratory of Computational and Experimental Biology,
National Institutes of Health)
uses information theory to study transcriptases and gene recognition sites.
- The Centre for Quantum
Compuation at the Clarendon Laboratory, Department of
Physics, Oxford University.
They study physics of
information, in particular quantum computation and
communication, quantum phenomena such as quantum
entanglement and interference in the context of new modes of computation.
They are interested in computational complexity of quantum computers and
investigate practicalities of quantum computation. The site eatures
expository sketches. You may also wish to visit the Quantum Information
Page maintained by John Smolin of the UCLA Particle Beam Physics Lab,
which has many links to on-line papers in this area.
Center for Advanced Studies
in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the
University of New Mexico.
Research interests include
and nonequilibrium statistical physics.
OSCAR Research Project
at the Goddard Space Flight Center uses a maximal entropy method to "sharpen" the misfocused
images obtained by the Hubble Space Telescope.
Check out the nifty movie which illustrates how this works!
at Los Alamos National Laboratory also works with maximal entropy methods.
If you use maxent, you should read their critique of one of the most popular maxent techniques.
You can also find here an expository article on maxent method for tomography, which
features an explanation of "suprisal analysis", and some interesting pictures.
Thermodynamics Research Laboratory
deals with statistical mechanics, state equations, phase transitions and
Entropy on the World Wide Web.
