In this paper, some relations between estimation and mutual information are given by expressing two mutual information calculations in terms of two distinct estimation errors. Specifically the mutual information between a stochastic signal and a pure jump Levy process whose rate function depends on the signal is expressed in terms of a filtering error and the rate of change of this mutual information with respect to a parameter multiplying the rate function of the Levy process is expressed in terms of a smoothing error. These results generalize the analogous mutual information results for some Gaussian noise processes with additive stochastic signals.
