DESCRIPTION:On the 31 May 2011\, I gave a talk to the informat
ion theory group explaining what was known about t
he entropy of the sum of discrete random variables
and giving examples for which knowing bounds on t
his entropy would be useful. A lot has happened si
nce\, in particular through one paper by Jog and A
nantharam published on arXiv and of which a short
version will be presented at ISIT 2013. I will rev
iew what I told you in 2011 and give you a summary
of the results in their ISIT paper\, as well as d
iscuss the remaining open problems that I believe
are solvable within the next few years.
