  • 405 Downloads

Abstract

Inherent in the definition of Shannon theory problems is an asymptotic characterization of the performance, rates and error probabilities of all possible code constructions in the given context. Then the results one is looking for give so-called single-letter characterizations of these performance measures. Yet nobody has put forward a mathematically valid explanation of the key notion of single-letter characterization.
