In this paper it is found that, regardless of the statistics of the input, the derivative of the relative entropy over the Binomial channel can be seen as the expectation of a function that has as argument the mean of the conditional distribution that models the channel. Based on this relationship we formulate a similar expression for the mutual information concept. In addition to this, using the connection between the Binomial and Poisson distribution we develop similar results for the Poisson channel. Novelty of the results presented here lies on the fact that, expressions obtained can be applied to a wide range of scenarios.

We study the relation of the mutual information and relative entropy over the Binomial and Negative Binomial channels with estimation theoretical quantities, in which we extend already known results for Gaussian and Poisson channels. We establish general expressions for these information theory concepts with a direct connection with estimation theory through the conditional mean estimation and a particular loss function.
