Information Flow Decomposition in Feedback Systems: General Case Study

Bertrand Wechsler, Dan Eilat, Nicolas Limal

We derive three fundamental decompositions on relevant information quantities in feedback systems. The feedback systems considered in this paper are only restricted to be causal in time domain and the channels are allowed to be subject to arbitrary distribution. These decompositions comprise the well-known mutual information and the directed information, and indicate a law of conservation of information flows in the closed-loop network.
