On analytic properties of entropy rate
On analytic properties of entropy rate.
Technical Report , 10 p.
Entropy rate of discrete random sources are a real valued functional on the space of probability measures associated with the random sources. If one equips this space with a topology one can ask for the analytic properties of the entropy rates. A natural choice is the topology, which is induced by the norm of total variation. A central result is that entropy rate is Lipschitz continuous relative to this topology. The consequences are manifold. First, corollaries are obtained that refer to prevalent objects of probability theory. Second, the result is extended to entropy rate of dynamical systems. Third, it is shown how to exploit the proof schemes to give a direct and elementary proof for the existence of entropy rate of asymptotically mean stationary random sources.
