Abstract

A new class of channel models with memory is presented in order to study various kinds of interference phenomena. It is shown, among other things, that when all other parameters are held fixed, channel capacity C is an increasing function of the memory length, while the cutoff rate R0 generally is a decreasing function. Calculations with various explicit coding schemes indicate that C is better than R0 as a performance measure for these channel models. As a partial resolution of this C versus R0 paradox, the conjecture is offered that R0 is more properly a measure of coding delay rather than of coding complexity.
