Partially Channel Optimized Quantization

Dr. Benjamin Farber

We discuss quantizers that transmit across noisy channels. In particular, various results involving index assignments for decoder optimized quantizers are given, such as the optimality of the Natural Binary Code. In contrast, it is shown that almost all index assignments are of poor quality. (Work performed jointly with Professor Ken Zeger)
