An Identity of Chernoff Bounds with an Interpretation in Statistical Physics and Applications in Information Theory
, 2007
"... An identity between two versions of the Chernoff bound on the probability a certain large deviations event, is established. This identity has an interpretation in statistical physics, namely, an isothermal equilibrium of a composite system that consists of multiple subsystems of particles. Several i ..."

An identity between two versions of the Chernoff bound on the probability a certain large deviations event, is established. This identity has an interpretation in statistical physics, namely, an isothermal equilibrium of a composite system that consists of multiple subsystems of particles. Several information–theoretic application examples, where the analysis of this large deviations probability naturally arises, are then described from the viewpoint of this statistical mechanical interpretation. This results in several relationships between information theory and statistical physics, which we hope, the reader will find insightful.
A Converse Coding Theorem for Mismatched Decoding at the Output of BinaryInput Memoryless Channels
"... An upper bound on the maximal transmission rate over binaryinput memoryless channels, provided that the decoding decision rule is given, is derived. If the decision rule is equivalent to the maximum likelihood decoding (matched decoding), then the bound coincides with the channel capacity. Otherwis ..."

An upper bound on the maximal transmission rate over binaryinput memoryless channels, provided that the decoding decision rule is given, is derived. If the decision rule is equivalent to the maximum likelihood decoding (matched decoding), then the bound coincides with the channel capacity. Otherwise (mismatched decoding), it coincides with a known lower bound.
