Binary Symmetric channel (BSC) is idealised model used for noisy channel.
symmetric p( 01) =p(10)

P(Yj| Xi) = Pe if i≠j; P(Yj| Xi) = 1- Pe if i=j;
X P(Y0|X0) Y0 P(X0) P(Y0) P(Y1|X0) P(Y0|X1) X P(Y1|X1) Y1 P(X1) P(Y1) Forward transition probabilities of the noisy binary symmetric channel. Binary Symmetric Channel (BSC). Transmitted source symbols Xi; i=0, Received symbols Yj; j=0,1;, Given P(Xi), source probability; P(Yj| Xi) = Pe if i≠j; P(Yj| Xi) = 1- Pe if i=j; where Pe is the given error rate.

Calculate the average mutual information (the average amount of source information acquired per received symbol, as distinguished for that per source symbol, which was given by the entropy H(X)). Step 1: P(Yj,Xi)=P(Xi)P(Yj|Xi); i=0, j=0,1. Step 2: P(Yj) =ΣX P(Yj,Xi) ; j=0,1. (Logically the probability of receiving a particular Yj is the sum of all joint probabilities over the range of Xi. (i.e. the prob of receiving 1 is the sum of the probability of sending 1 receiving 1 plus the probability of sending 0, receiving 1. that is, the sum of the probability of sending 1 and receiving correctly plus the probability of sending 0, receiving wrongly. )

Step 3: I(Yj,Xi) = log {P(Xi|Yj)/P(Xi) }
=log {P(Yj,Xi)/ [P(Xi)P(Yj)]} ; i=0,1. j=0,1. (This quantifies the amount of information conveyed, when Xi is transmitted, and Yj is received. Over a perfect noiseless channel, this is self information of Xi, because each received symbol uniquely identifies a transmitted symbol with P(Xi|Yj)=1; If it is very noisy, or communication breaks down P(Yj,Xi)=P(Xi)P(Yj), this is zero, no information has been transferred). Step 4: I(X,Y)= I(Y ,X ) = ΣX ΣY P(Yj,Xi)log{P(Xi|Yj)/P(Xi)} = ΣX ΣY P(Yj,Xi) log {P(Yj,Xi)/ [P(Xi)P(Yj)]}

Equivocation Represents the destructive effect of noise, or additional information needed to make the reception correct y x Noisy channel transmitter receiver Noiseless channel Hypothetical observer The observer looks at the transmitted and received digits; if they are the same, reports a ‘1’, if different a ‘0’.

The information sent by the observer is easily evaluated as
x M S y observer 1 The information sent by the observer is easily evaluated as -[p(0)logp(0)+p(1)logp(1)] applied to the binary string. The probability of ‘0’ is just the channel error probability. Example: A binary system produces Marks and Spaces with equal probabilities, 1/8 of all pulses being received in error. Find the information sent by the observer. The information sent by observer is -[7/8log (7/8)+1/8log(1/8)]=0.54 bits since the input information is 1 bit/symbol, the net information is =0.46 bits, agreeing with previous results.

General expression for equivocation
The noise in the system has destroyed 0.55 bits of information, or that the equivocation is 0.55 bits. General expression for equivocation Consider a specific pair of transmitted and received digits {x,y} Noisy channel probability change p(x)p(x|y) Receiver : probability correction p(x|y)1 The information provided by the observer =-log( p(x|y) ) Averaging over all pairs probability of a given pair General expression for equivocation

The information transferred via the noisy channel (in the absence of the observer)
Information loss due to noise (equivocation) Information in noiseless system (source entropy)

Example: A binary system produces Marks with probability of 0
Example: A binary system produces Marks with probability of 0.7 and Spaces with probability 0.3, 2/7 of the Marks are received in error and 1/3 of the Spaces. Find the information transfer using the expression for equivocation. x M S y x M S y P(x) 0.7 0.3 P(y) 0.6 0.4 P(x|y) 5/6 1/2 1/6 P(y|x) 5/7 2/7 2/3 1/3 P(xy) 0.5 0.2 0.1 I(xy) terms 0.126 -0.997 0.147 -0.085
