The wire-tap channel
  • A. Wyner
  • Computer Science
  • The Bell System Technical Journal
  • 1 October 1975
We consider the situation in which digital data is to be reliably transmitted over a discrete, memoryless channel (dmc) that is subjected to a wire-tap at the receiver. We assume that the wire-tapperExpand

  • Mathematics, Computer Science
  • IEEE Trans. Inf. Theory
  • 1976
Let \{(X_{k}, Y_{k}) \}^{ \infty}_{k=1} be a sequence of independent drawings of a pair of dependent random variables X, Y . Let us say that X takes values in the finite set \cal X . It is desired toExpand

Coding Theorems for a Discrete Source With a Fidelity CriterionInstitute of Radio Engineers, International Convention Record, vol. 7, 1959.
Consider a discrete source producing a sequence of message letters from a finite alphabet. A single-letter distortion measure is given by a non-negative matrix (d ij ). The entryd ij measures theExpand

Shannon-theoretic approach to a Gaussian cellular multiple-access channel
  • A. Wyner
  • Mathematics, Computer Science
  • IEEE Trans. Inf. Theory
  • 1 November 1994
We obtain Shannon-theoretic limits for a very simple cellular multiple-access system. In our model the received signal at a given cell site is the sum of the signals transmitted from within that cellExpand

The common information of two dependent random variables
  • A. Wyner
  • Mathematics, Computer Science
  • IEEE Trans. Inf. Theory
  • 1 March 1975
The problem of finding a meaningful measure of the "common information" or "common randomness' of two discrete dependent random variables X,Y is studied. The quantity C(X; Y) is defined as theExpand

Information theoretic considerations for cellular mobile radio
We present some information-theoretic considerations used to determine upper bounds on the information rates that can be reliably transmitted over a two-ray propagation path mobile radio channelExpand

Channels with Side Information at the Transmitter
In certain communication systems where information is to be transmitted from one point to another, additional side information is available at the transmitting point. This side information relates toExpand

  • 1 May 1975
Let \{(X_k, Y_k, V_k)\}_{k=1}^{\infty} be a sequence of independent copies of the triple (X,Y,V) of discrete random variables. We consider the following source coding problem with a side informationExpand

Some asymptotic properties of the entropy of a stationary ergodic data source with applications to data compression
  • A. Wyner, J. Ziv
  • Mathematics, Computer Science
  • IEEE Trans. Inf. Theory
  • 1 November 1989
Theorems concerning the entropy of a stationary ergodic information source are derived and used to obtain insight into the workings of certain data-compression coding schemes, in particular theExpand
