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