—We introduce a new class of problems called network information flow which is inspired by computer network applications. Consider a point-to-point communication network on which a number of information sources are to be mulitcast to certain sets of destinations. We assume that the information sources are mutually independent. The problem is to characterize(More)
• Abstract— In this paper we present a simple proof of the strong converse for identification via discrete memoryless quantum channels, based on a novel covering lemma. The new method is a generalization to quantum communication channels of Ahlswede's recently discovered appoach to classical channels. It involves a development of explicit large deviation(More)
The author determines for arbitrarily varying channels a) the average error capacity and b) the maximal error capacity in case of randomized encoding. A formula for the average error capacity in case of randomized encoding was announced several years ago by Dobrushin ([3]). Under a mild regularity condition this formula turns out to be valid and follows as(More)

We consider a sequence {Zg}i~ 1 of independent, identically distributed random variables where each Z i is a pair (Xi, Y/). For any pair of events {X"~ ~r { Y"~ N} satisfying Pr(Y" e NIX" s d) > 1-~ and for any non-negative real c we investigate how small Pr(Y"~) can be in case Pr(X"ed) is larger than 2-"c. We give the full answer to a generalized form of(More)
Upper and lower bounds to the oblivious transfer (OT) capacity of discrete memoryless channels and multiple sources are obtained, for 1 of 2 strings OT with honest but curious participants. The upper bounds hold also for one-string OT. The results provide the exact value of OT capacity for a specified class of models, and the necessary and sufficient(More)
