We have seen that the AVC is one of the deepest models in Information Theory in the mathematical sense and many ideas have developed while people investigated it. To conclude the chapter, we present two examples to show its application to other models in Information Theory, and hope that the reader can find more relations between AVC and other models in Information Theory.
