Abstract

A method is described for adaptively estimating the probability of occurrence of a symbol from a binary nonstationary source. The method comprises the steps of (1) assigning an initial value to said probability; and (2) updating said probability value at the occurrence of each symbol, the updating being dependent on a combination of the occurred symbol and a Monte Carlo function.
