—A technique is proposed for the derivation of upper bounds on channel capacity. It is based on a dual expression for channel capacity where the maximization (of mutual information) over distributions on the channel input alphabet is replaced with a minimization (of average relative entropy) over distributions on the channel output alphabet. We also propose(More)
A general technique is proposed for the derivation of upper bounds on channel capacity. The technique is based on a dual expression for channel capacity where the maximization (of mutual information) over distributions on the channel input alphabet is replaced with a minimization (of average relative entropy) over distributions on the channel output(More)
We derive the fading number of stationary and ergodic (not necessarily Gaussian) single-input multiple-output (SIMO) fading channels with memory. This is the second term, after the double-logarithmic term, of the high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) expansion of channel capacity. The transmitter and receiver are assumed to be cognizant of the probability law(More)
This paper investigates a channel model describing optical communication based on intensity modulation. It is assumed that the main distortion is caused by additive Gaussian noise, however, with a noise variance depending on the current signal strength. Both the high-power and low-power asymptotic capacities under simultaneously both a peak-power and an(More)
Upper and lower bounds are derived on the capacity of the free-space optical intensity channel. This channel has a nonnegative input (representing the transmitted optical intensity), which is corrupted by additive white Gaussian noise. To preserve the battery and for safety reasons, the input is constrained in both its average and its peak power. For a(More)
The large-inputs asymptotic capacity of a peak-power and average-power limited discrete-time Poisson channel is derived using a new firm (nonasymptotic) lower bound and an asymptotic upper bound. The upper bound is based on the dual expression for channel capacity and the notion of capacity-achieving input distributions that escape to infinity. The lower(More)
A very recent and new model describing communication based on the exchange of chemical molecules in a drifting liquid medium is investigated and new analytical upper and lower bounds on the capacity are presented. The bounds are asymptotically tight, i.e., if the average-delay constraint is loosened to infinity or if the drift velocity of the liquid medium(More)
The fading number of a general (not necessarily Gaussian) regular multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) fading channel with arbitrary temporal and spatial memory is derived. The channel is assumed to be noncoherent, i.e., neither receiver nor transmitter have knowledge about the channel state, but they only know the probability law of the fading process.(More)
—The memoryless additive inverse Gaussian noise channel model describing communication based on the exchange of chemical molecules in a drifting liquid medium is investigated for the situation of simultaneously an average-delay and a peak-delay constraint. Analytical upper and lower bounds on its capacity in bits per molecule use are presented. These bounds(More)
