It is not possible to generate a Gaussian sequence by coding coin flips with one output symbol being produced for every flip. ? How close an approximation is possible, and how can it be achieved? ? Unsurprisingly, the problem is a variation on Shannon’s rate-distortion theory. ? The simulation problem provides a distinct viewpoint, however, and leads to several interesting relations among stationary or sliding-block codes, Shannon entropy rate, and the transportation (Monge-Kantorovitch-Wasserstein-Ornstein etc.) distance measure on random processes. ? This talk is a survey of several of these ideas.
