Abstract

In this paper, we consider single- and multi-user Gaussian channels with feedback under expected power constraints and with non-vanishing error probabilities. In the first of two contributions, we study asymptotic expansions for the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel with feedback under the average error probability formalism. By drawing ideas from Gallager and Nakiboǧlu's work for the direct part and the meta-converse for the converse part, we establish the ϵ-capacity and show that it depends on ϵ in general and so the strong converse fails to hold. Furthermore, we provide bounds on the second-order term in the asymptotic expansion. We show that for any positive integer L, the second-order term is bounded between a term proportional to -ln(L) n (where ln(L)(·) is the L-fold nested logarithm function) and a term proportional to +(n ln n)1/2, where n is the blocklength. The lower bound on the second-order term shows that feedback does provide an improvement in the maximal achievable rate over the case where no feedback is available. In our second contribution, we establish the ϵ-capacity region for the AWGN multiple access channel with feedback under the expected power constraint by combining ideas from hypothesis testing, information spectrum analysis, Ozarow's coding scheme, and power control.
