Shannon's celebrated source coding theorem can be viewed as a "one-sided law of large numbers." We formulate second-order noiseless source coding theorems for the deviation of the codeword lengths from the entropy. For a class of sources that includes Markov chains we prove a "one-sided" central limit theorem and a law of the iterated logarithm. © 1997 IEEE.
