Communication students frequently approach librarians seeking a source that will provide a ready summary of a particular theory or tradition. Communication scholars also occasionally need a good central reference for their teaching and research. This encyclopedia provides a one-stop source for theories and theoretical concepts and a relatively comprehensive overview of the entire field of communication theory.
It is a significant resource because it summarizes in one place the diversity of theory in the communication field. Yet unlike larger topical encyclopedias that try to cover all topics in many volumes, this is a relatively small set focused just on theory. It will provide an excellent starting place for individuals seeking information on the various topics covered. Furthermore, readers will be able to see how topics relate to one another, get a sense of larger traditions and histories, and find a variety of bibliographical sources with which they can begin to expand their reading lists.
This encyclopedia is a two-volume set that, in more than entries, offers current descriptions of the theories that explain numerous aspects of communication and present the background issues and concepts that comprise these theories. Entries range in length—from 1, to 3, words, depending upon the scope and detail required. To ensure adequate coverage, an editorial board of 10 members—also of diverse cultures and countries of origin—was formed to review the entries. All are recognized experts in several areas within communication theory and have contributed significantly to its development.
All reviewers are also contributors. The entries are written for the introductory reader—students who have little or no background in the topic. For the most part, contributors have avoided unnecessary jargon and defined terms as needed. Although many of the entries require attentive reading, serious readers will find them accessible and informative, and those who want more advanced treatment can pursue further readings or entries in the bibliography.
We made the decision to feature elements, concepts, dimensions, and traditions of theory, as well as to feature individual theories, as entries. Individual theorists are listed separately with reference to the entries in which their work is discussed. Entries do not include citations, but each lists a few key sources as Further Readings. A single classified bibliography of major theoretical works is also included. Readers can access the information in a number of ways: The alphabetical list of entries at the beginning of each volume provides the easiest way for a reader to identify topics of interest.
Readers may want to start here by scanning the list of topics to identify those most relevant to their research.
An encyclopedia of philosophy articles written by professional philosophers.
The Reader's Guide at the beginning of the set provides a classified list of topics organized around 17 themes. With this guide readers can begin with a broad theme and see which entries relate to it. This guide is also of value for showing connections among theories and for developing a sense of the field as a whole.
This list identifies the entries that cover each theorist's work. The Selected Bibliography of Major Works by Topic, located at the back of Volume 2, will be a vital resource for readers seeking original works. Readers can scan the alphabetical listing of topics to find major works of interest. This tool comes with instructions on how best to use it.

Types Decision trees used in data mining are of two main types:  Classification tree analysis is when the predicted outcome is the class to which the data belongs.
Formulae  The algorithms that are used for constructing decision trees usually work top-down by choosing a variable at each step that is the next best variable to use in splitting the set of items. Gini impurity Main article: Gini coefficient  Used by the CART classification and regression tree algorithm, Gini impurity is a measure of how often a randomly chosen element from the set would be incorrectly labeled if it were randomly labeled according to the distribution of labels in the subset.
Limitations  The problem of learning an optimal decision tree is known to be NP-complete under several aspects of optimality and even for simple concepts. Journal of Computing. Karen Kraus.
