An anomaly detection problem is investigated, in which there are totally n sequences with s anomalous sequences to be detected. Each normal sequence contains m independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) samples drawn from a distribution p, whereas each anomalous sequence contains m i.i.d. samples drawn from a distribution q that is distinct from p.(More)
The following detection problem is studied, in which there are M sequences of samples out of which one outlier sequence needs to be detected. Each typical sequence contains n independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) continuous observations from a known distribution π, and the outlier sequence contains n i.i.d. observations from an outlier(More)
A novel information theoretic approach is proposed to solve the secret sharing problem , in which a dealer distributes one or multiple secrets among a set of participants in such a manner that for each secret only qualified sets of users can recover this secret by pooling their shares together while non-qualified sets of users obtain no information about(More)
The problem of estimating the Kullback-Leibler divergence between two unknown distributions is studied. The alphabet size k of the distributions can scale to infinity. The estimation is based on m and n independent samples respectively drawn from the two distributions. It is first shown that there does not exist any consistent estimator to guarantee(More)
The $K$-receiver degraded broadcast channel with secrecy outside a bounded range is studied, in which a transmitter sends $K$ messages to $K$ receivers, and the channel quality gradually degrades from receiver $K$ to receiver 1. Each receiver $k$ is required to decode message $W_1,\ldots,W_k$, for $1\leq k\leq K$, and to be kept ignorant of(More)
