Abstract

The large-inputs asymptotic capacity of a peak and average power
limited discrete-time Poisson channel is derived using a new firm
(non-asymptotic) lower bound and an asymptotic upper bound. The
upper bound is based on the dual expression for channel capacity and
the recently introduced notion of "capacity-achieving input
distributions that escape to infinity." The lower bound is based
on a lemma that lower bounds the entropy of a conditionally Poisson
random variable in terms of the differential entropy of the
conditional mean.
