Abstract

The redundancy for universal lossless compression in Campbell's setting is characterized as a minimax Rényi divergence, which is shown to be equal to the maximal α-mutual information via a generalized redundancy-capacity theorem. Special attention is placed on the analysis of the asymptotics of minimax Rényi divergence, which is determined up to a term vanishing in blocklength.
