We wish to encode a Bernoulli( α ) process V 1 ,V 2 ,... for transmission over a binary symmetric channel with error probability p . V n 011011101 −→ X n ( V n ) −→ a45 a45 a8 a8 a8 a8 a8 a42 a72 a72 a72 a72 a72 a106 1 1 p p −→ Y n −→ ˆ V n 011011101 Find conditions on α and p so that the probability of error P ( ˆ V n negationslash = V n ) can be made to go to zero as n −→ ∞ . 2. Cascaded BSCs. Consider the two discrete memoryless channels ( X ,p 1 ( y | x ) , Y ) and ( Y ,p 2 ( z | y ) , Z ). Let p 1 ( y | x ) and p 2 ( z | y ) be binary symmetric channels with crossover probabilities λ 1 and λ 2 respectively. a45 a45 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a51 a81 a81 a81 a81 a81 a81 a81 a81 a81 a81 a81 a81 a81 a81 a81 a115 a45 a45 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17 a17...
