ECE 1502 — Information Theory Problem Set 6 solutions 1 April 11, 2006 13.1 One bit quantization of a Gaussian random variable. Let X ∼ N (0 , σ 2 ) and let the distortion measure be squared error. With one bit quantization, the obvious reconstruction regions are the positive and negative real axes. The reconstruction point is the centroid of each region. For example, for the positive real line, the centroid a is a = 0 x 2 2 πσ 2 e - x 2 2 σ 2 dx (1) = 0 σ 2 π e - y dy (2) = σ 2 π , (3) using the substitution y = x 2 / 2 σ 2 . The expected distortion for one bit quantization is D = 0 -∞ x + σ 2 π 2 1 2 πσ 2 e - x 2 2 σ 2 dx (4) + 0 x - σ 2 π 2 1 2 πσ 2 e - x 2 2 σ 2 dx (5) = 2 -∞ x 2 + σ 2 2 π 1 2 πσ 2 e - x 2 2 σ 2 dx (6) - 2 0 - 2 2 π 1 2 πσ 2 e - x 2 2 σ 2 dx (7) = σ 2 + 2 π σ 2 - 4 1 2 π σ 2 2 π (8) = σ 2 π - 2 π . (9) 13.2 Rate Distortion . We wish to evaluate the rate distortion function R ( D ) = min p x | x ): ( x, ˆ x ) p ( x ) p x | x ) d ( x, ˆ x ) D I ( X ; ˆ X ) . (10) Since d (0 , 1) = , we must have p (0 , 1) = 0 for a finite distortion. Thus, the distortion D = p (1 , 0), and hence we have the following joint distribution for ( X, ˆ X ) (assuming D 1 2 ). p ( x, ˆ x ) = 1 2 0 D 1 2 - D (11) The mutual information for this joint distribution is R ( D ) = I ( X ; ˆ X ) = H ( X ) - H ( X | ˆ X ) (12) 1 Solutions to problems from the text are supplied courtesy of Joy A.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
