ABSTRACT
We consider discrete channels with stationary additive
noise. We show that output feedback does not increase the
capacity of such channels. This is shown for both ergodic
and non-ergodic additive stationary channels.
1. INTRODUCTION
We consider discrete channels with stationary additive
noise. Note that such channels need not be memoryless; in
general, they have memory. The Gilbert burst-noise chan-
nel [1], as well as the Polya-contagion channel [2], belong to
the class of such channels. We assume that these channels
are each accompanied by a noiseless, delayless feedback
channel with large capacity. We show that the capacity of
the channels with feedback does not exceed their respective
