Alphabet-oriented and user-oriented source coding theories. (English) Zbl 0637.94006

Alphabet-oriented source coding theory as mentioned in the title is classical rate-distortion theory as covered e.g. in the book by Berger. Within this framework a joint source-channel coding theory is proved which generalizes existing results. Several examples are provided. A new user-oriented source coding theory is proposed and motivated, which makes use of distortion measures which are not of the average type. A forthcoming paper is announced (co-authored by O. Šefl and called “Spectrum-oriented source coding theory”) which will present results in the new theory.
