New Proofs of Extremal Inequalities With Applications

09/01/2021 ∙ by Yinfei Xu, et al. ∙ 0

The extremal inequality approach plays a key role in network information theory problems. In this paper, we propose a novel monotone path construction in product probability space. The optimality of Gaussian distribution is then established by standard perturbation arguments. The proofs of Liu-Viswanath extremal and vector Generalization of Costa's entropy power inequality are illustrated into the unified framework. As applications, capacity region of the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) Gaussian broadcast channel and rate-distortion-equivocation function of the vector Gaussian secure source coding are revisited through our proposed extremal inequality approach.
