We shall consider now the encoding of signals on [ - T , T ] where T > 0 is fixed. Ultimately we shall be interested in encoding classes of bandlimited signals like the class B A However, we begin the story by considering the more general setting of encoding the elements of any given compact subset K of a normed linear space X . One can determine the best encoding of K by what is known as the Kolmogorov entropy of K in X .

To begin, let us consider an encoder-decoder pair ( E , D ) E maps K to a finite stream of bits. D maps a stream of bits to a signal in X . This is illustrated in . Note that many functions can be mapped onto the same bitstream.

Illustration of encoding and decoding.

Define the distortion d for this encoder-decoder by

d ( K , E , D , X ) : = sup f K f - D ( E f ) X ̲ ¯ .
Let n ( K , E ) = sup f K # E f where # E f is the number of bits in the bitstream E f . Thus n is the maximum length of the bitstreams for the various f K . There are two ways we can define optimal encoding:

  • Prescribe ϵ , the maximum distortion that we are willing to tolerate. For this ϵ , find the smallest n ϵ ( K , X ) : = inf ( E , D ) { n ( K , E ) : d ( K , E , D , X ) ϵ } . This is the smallest bit budget under which we could encode all elements of K to distortion ϵ .
  • Prescribe N : find the smallest distortion d ( K , E , D , X ) over all E , D with n ( K , E ) N . This is the best encoding performance possible with a prescribed bit budget.

There is a simple mathematical solution to these two encoding problems based on the notion of Kolmogorov Entropy.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
