Abstract
The high-rate squared-error distortions of a balanced multiple
description lattice vector quantizer are analyzed for a memoryless
source with probability density function p, differential entropy
h(p) < infty, and lattice codebook Lambda.
For any a in (0,1) and rate pair (R,R), it is shown that the
two-channel distortion d_0 and the channel 1 (or channel 2)
distortions d_s satisfy
lim_{R -> infty} d_0 2^(2R(1+a)) = (1/4) G(Lambda) 2^{2h(p)}
and
lim_{R -> infty} d_s 2^(2R(1-a)) = G(S_L) 2^2h(p),
where G(Lambda) is the normalized second moment of a Voronoi
cell of the lattice Lambda and G(S_L) is the normalized second
moment of a sphere in L dimensions.
