Consider the source AS = {a, b, c, d, e}, PS = {1/3, 1/3, 1/9, 1/9, 1/9} and the channel whose transition probability matrix is Note that the source alphabet has five symbols, but the channel alphabet A X = A Y = {0, 1, ...

Poor man's noisychannel coding theorem. Pretending that the union bound (13.25) is accurate, and using the average weight enumerator function of a random linear code (13.14) (section 13.5) as A(w), estimate the maximum ...

Assignment 1: Deviance is the label sociologists use to describe behavior that violates cultural norms. Norms include the expectations and rules that guide our behavior, appearance, manners, gestures, body language, cond ...

Find the capacity and optimal input distribution for the threeinput, threeoutput channel whose transition probabilities are:

1. Suppose P(t) is the monthly payment, in dollars, on a mortgage which will take t years to pay off. What are the units of P'(t)? What is the practical meaning of P'(t)? What is its sign? 2. After investing $1000 at an ...

1. If the current density passing through the ntype 1 ohmcm Si bar is increased to 10 4 A/cm 2 and 10 5 A/cm 2 (by reducing the crosssectional area, what are the drift times for an electron across a 1 mm long Si b ...

1. Why is DFIG not considered for motoring applications for speed range from zero to rated speed? 2. Equation relates stator voltage, rotor voltage, and torque. Use a spreadsheet program to develop a macro to plot a fami ...

1. In what energy range (or above what energy) will the Boltzmann approximation give less than 1% error (a) in electron occupation, and (b) in hole occupation? Use the Fermi energy, E F , as the reference. 2. At what ene ...

(a) Find the best linear approximation, L(x), to f(x) = ex near x = 0. (b) What is the sign of the error, E(x) = f(x)  L(x) for x near 0? (c) Find the true value of the function at x = 1. What is the error? (Give decima ...

Ammonia, NH 3 , in air is being absorbed into water within the enclosed tank shown in the figure below. The liquid and gas phases are both well mixed, and mass transfer occurs only at the exposed gasliquid interface. Th ...
