abstract = {In recent years, a number of mathematical relationships have been established between information measures and estimation measures for various models, including Gaussian, Poisson and binomial models. In this paper, it is shown that the second derivative of the input-output mutual information with respect to the input scaling can be expressed as the expectation of a certain Bregman divergence pertaining to the conditional expectations of the input and the input power. This result is similar to that found for the Gaussian model where the Bregman divergence therein is the square distance. In addition, the Poisson, binomial and negative binomial models are shown to be similar in the small scaling regime in the sense that the derivative of the mutual information and the derivative of the relative entropy converge to the same value.},

abstract = {We address mesh networks with decode and forward relays that use binary modulations. For detection, the nodes employ equal gain combining, which is appealing because it is very easy to implement. We study the performance of these networks and compare it to that of multihop multi-branch networks. We also examine the performance of the networks when both the number of groups and total number of nodes are fixed but the topology of the network varies. We demonstrate the performance of these networks where the channels are modeled with Nakagami distributions and the noise is zero mean Gaussian},

abstract = {In signal processing, it is typical to develop or use a method based on a given model. In practice, however, we almost never know the actual model and we hope that the assumed model is in the neighborhood of the true one. If deviations exist, the method may be more or less sensitive to them. Therefore, it is important to know more about this sensitivity, or in other words, how robust the method is to model deviations. To that end, it is useful to have a metric that can quantify the robustness of the method. In this paper we propose a procedure for developing a variety of metrics for measuring robustness. They are based on a discrete random variable that is generated from observed data and data generated according to past data and the adopted model. This random variable is uniform if the model is correct. When the model deviates from the true one, the distribution of the random variable deviates from the uniform distribution. One can then employ measures for differences between distributions in order to quantify robustness. In this paper we describe the proposed methodology and demonstrate it with simulated data.},
