This problem is related to intersymbolinterference (ISI) noise in onoﬀ
keying, direct detection optical communication. Consider a train of
n
optical pulses arriving at an
optical receiver. These pulses represent
n
bits of binary information (consisting of zeros or ones).
Let
P
(
t
) denote the received optical power as a function of real time,
t
. If each bit is allowed to
occupy
T
B
seconds and if all types of pulse broadening in the ﬁber are neglected, then we can
represent
P
(
t
) as
P
(
t
) =

, the pulse intensity

is either 0 W or 1
W, corresponding to the absence or presence of a pulse, respectively.
