Abstract:

A very noisy channel is defined. This defini tion corresponds to many physical channels operating at low signal-to-noise ratio. For very noisy discrete input memoryless channels, the computation cutoff rate for sequential de coding, R comp, is shown to be one-half the capability, C. Furthermore, that choise of input probabilities which achieves C also maximizes R comp, and vice versa. Author
