Abstract:

The fundamental theorem of information theory for discrete memoryless channels is treated. Subsequent to some preliminary preparations, describing the decision scheme and average error probability, three proofs of the basic theorem are presented Feinsteins Proof, Shannons Proof, and Wolfowitzs Proof. A discussion of the bounds of error probability and their relations to the word length and the converse of the fundamental theorem is included. Author
