**Conditional Rate Distortion Theory**

by Robert M. Gray

**Publisher**: Information Systems Laboratory 1972**Number of pages**: 22

**Description**:

The conditional rate-distortion function has proved useful in source coding problems involving the possession of side information. This book is an early work on conditional rate distortion functions and related theory. The report provided supporting details for published papers relevant to the topic.
