Jan Kåhre comes from Åland, an autonomous group of islands
between Finland and Sweden.His childhood home can be seen in "A street
view" if you click on the British flag at the home page of the
City of Mariehamn, the capital of Åland islands or on the stamp.
His father was the marine historian Georg Kåhre (Last Tall Ships), who also taught Latin and wrote poetry under the pen name Stefan Sylwander, the first book published in 1928.
The name Kåhre means "breeze" and is spelled with a special Swedish letter, an a under a small sun. The name is pronounced as
"co-relation" without the "lation". Jan is a common Swedish and Dutch male Christian name.
The author graduated from Helsinki University of Technology; M. Sc. (Diploma Engineer) in Technical Physics. The studies included Nuclear Reactor Engineering, which aroused his interest in automatic control. His first job as an engineer was for Foxboro.
The author is an inventor and entrepreneur, the co-founder and owner of K-Patents Oy, a company making process instruments. He has been involved in the design of the K-Patents Process Refractometer and recently also in optical pH transmitters; see Instrument for Measuring pH with Optical Indicator Film, a dissertation by V. Voipio.
The Mathematical Theory of Information has been written out of pure interest, and in complete freedom from academic affiliations or grants.
