Abstract

In successive refinement of information, the decoder refines its representation of the source progressively as it receives more encoded bits. The rate-distortion region of successive refinement describes the minimum rates required to attain the target distortions at each decoding stage. In this paper, we derive a parametric characterization of the rate-distortion region for successive refinement of abstract sources. Our characterization extends Csiszar's result [1] to successive refinement, and generalizes a result by Tuncel and Rose [2], applicable for finite alphabet sources, to abstract sources. The new characterization leads to a family of outer bounds to the rate-distortion region. It also enables new nonasymptotic converse bounds.
