Binary symmetric channel capacity

  1. Apr 20, 2007 #1
    Hi to our nice community. I want to learn why
    in a binary symetric channel the channel is calculated as
    C=1+plogp+(1-p)log(1-p)

    I only know that the channel is denoted as C=maxI(X;Y)
    btw what ; means in X;Y?
    Unfortunately my book doesnt mention these things so if u can reply me or provide me with some good links that will be rezlly nicenow i need something more
