Distributed storage systems (DSSs) traditionally replicate data blocks to achieve storage reliability. Considering the rapid growth of data volume as well as costly maintenance of storage components in DSSs, the replication method is becoming unattractive because of its very large storage...
Detection and diagnosis of plant-wide abnormalities and disturbances are major problems in large-scale complex systems. To determine the root cause(s) of specific abnormalities, it is important to capture the process connectivity and investigate the fault propagation pathways, in which causality...
Animals must assess the risk of mortality due to starvation or predation when making foraging decisions. This decision-making can be guided by cues from the environment, conspecifics, heterospecifics, or by predators themselves. Information theory predicts that high certainty cues should be...
One of the most stunning results of information theory is the channel coding theorem addressing the maximum rate of reliable communication over a noisy channel, known as channel capacity. In this thesis, we consider two problems emerging from the classic channel coding theorem. First, we study...
