Dynamic Stream (Definition)

A dynamic stream can represent an information flow -- a sequence of messages encoded by the sender and communicated using a transmission channel possibly distorted with noise, to a receiver whose goal is to reconstruct the sender's messages and interpret message semantics. -- From: "SHANNON, C. E. 1948. A mathematical theory of communication. Bell Syst. Tech. J. 27, 379-423, 623-656."
