Optimal Coding for Qualitative Sources on Noiseless Channels
MetadataMostra tutti i dati dell'item
In this paper we perform the encoding for sources which are only qualitatively characterized, that is, each message the source delivers possesses a certain quality, expressed as cost, importance or utility. The proposed encoding procedure is an optimal one, because it leads to maximum information per code word and it assures a minimum time for the transmission of the source information.
