Mutual information of wireless channels and block-Jacobi ergodic operators

In telecommunication models the quality of the transferred data is assessed through the entropy of the channel, a theoretical quantity that is usually not computable in practice. W. Hachem, A. Hardy and S. Shamai prove in [23] that one can relate this quantity for a large class of models involving several antennas (MIMO) to the equilibrium measure of a matrix valued Markov chain associated with the model, and so does its asymptotic behavior when the signal-noise-ratio parameter becomes large. By means of ergodicity results, this yields estimates for these quantities that are implementable faster than the naive estimators.
