# Books to develop a deep understanding of Algorithmic Information Theory?

I'm mathematical physicist working with hydrodynamics modelling. Recently, I had to turn to modelling of flows with particles and some questions I have I think are related to Algorithmic Information Theory. I have the general idea (like expected Kolmogorov complexity equals entropy, but this is more general physical intuition and I need more rigour), but I've never worked on AIT neither my colleagues, hence I'm here, asking for textbooks and advanced courses.

• I think it is usual to start with Li and Vitanyi's textbook.
