Information-Theoretic Tools for Optical Communications Engineers [Invited]
Paper i proceeding, 2018

Fundamental information-theoretic concepts are explained for nonspecialists, with emphasis on their practical usAge. The notions of a 'FEC threshold' and a 'nonlinear Shannon limit' are critically reviewed, highlighting their limitations and possible alternatives.
