lecture note 3


`      Formula

Since Formula is very small, from the right-hand side of the inequality we have Formula 



Definition(From the textbook): the relative entropy between two probability mass functions p(x) and q(x) is defined as




if ||p-q||  Formula we have Formula 


the number of  typical Formula 



Question :                Formula

               to prove   Formula


by l'Hôpital's rule, we haveFormula   



the number of the typical type-class Formula and the number of the typical element Formula

the size of largest set class Formula  

Expected # bits  (the typical part + the atypical part)


the typical set decrease, as the epsilon decrease.


p <1/2 and n =10 in the following figures

Fig1: the relation between #of heads and probability,

Fig2: between # of heads and size of T(k,n)




(a) ,code with expected rate

(b)  code with and expected rate <
