Minimize the probability:

with respect to the constraint

I am trying to solve this using lagrange multipliers.

Even though i got the value i am not able to find the and values .

Can anyone please help me to get the and values .

Thanks

Thanks Bruno

the logarithm is respect to base 2

It is not compulsory to use Lagrange multipliers.

Can you please explain the minimizing procedure in detail. - January 6th 2010, 04:04 AMCaptainBlack
