I'm surprised[edit]

This really is math! From the title, I thought I'd be reading about Blackwell's channel, the one on cable TV where only the worst-dressed women are featured!  ;^> DavidCBryant 01:55, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Which Gel'fand?[edit]

This article asserts that Sergiu Gel'fand found the capacity formula for the Blackwell channel. Another article, Israel Gelfand, says that his father derived the formula. I'm not sure which is right, but this contradiction ought to be resolved. DavidCBryant 12:32, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

The contradiction was my error. The paper is definitely by "S.I. Gel'fand" but whether that is Sergui Gel'fand, I can't actually say. It seems right, as I replied on my talk page to your comment. - grubber 16:04, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
