Programming the Kennedy Receiver for Capacity Maximization versus Minimizing One-shot Error Probability

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We find the capacity attained by the Kennedy receiver for coherent-state BPSK when the symbol prior p and pre-detection displacement β are optimized. The optimal β is different than what minimizes error probability for single-shot BPSK state discrimination.
