A Modification to the Shannon Formula

  •  J. Ladvánszky    


Most recently, an experiment was published that cannot be described by the Shannon formula. We will give the details to the reader to check the deviation between the Shannon formula and the experiment. Then we derive a modification of the formula. Consequences of the modification is extended generality, and clear bounds for the average rate of reliable information transfer on a noisy channel of finite bandwidth.
