Causal Posterior Matching and its Applications

Anusha Lalitha, Anatoly Khina, Tara Javidi

We consider the problem of communication over the binary symmetric channel with feedback, where the information sequence is made available in a causal, possibly random, fashion. We develop a real-time variant of the renowned Horstein scheme and provide analytical guarantees for its error-probability exponential decay rate. We further use the scheme to stabilize an unstable control plant over a binary symmetric channel and compare the analytical guarantees with its empirical performance as well as with those of anytime-reliable codes.
