Using two examples, we will describe information theoretic quantities such as Shannon Entropy, Relative Entropy and Mutual Information.
In Example 1, we will obtain an operational one-shot meaning for Shannon's Mutual Information. In Example 2, we will obtain a one-shot version of Marton's bound. We will assume no prior background in information theory. (Based on joint work with David McAllester, Prahladh Harsha, Rahul Jain, Pranab Sen and Naqueeb Warsi.) |
