Controlling and stabilizing systems involves countering the impact of explicit communication constraints in addition to inherent system model parameter uncertainty and random noise. Here we use an information-theoretic approach to jointly tackle all three issues and understand their interactions. Our main result bounds the minimum communication rate required for the mean-square stability of a system with uncertain system gain. Moreover, our techniques extend to provide a finer characterization of the required rate when specific finite bounds on the second moment of the state are desired.
