FMEIT package for MatLab: FourierMotzkin elimination (FME) algorithm for information theoretic inequalities. This package combines the FME procedure together with an information theoretic inequality prover (ITIP). It was written primarily by Ido B. Gattegno.
BlahutArimoto Algorithm for optimizing the the directed information: we provide algorithm based on BlahutArimoto for maxmizing the dircted information for computing channel capacity with feedback and and minimizng the directed information for computing the rate distorstion with feedforward. this code was written in c by Iddo Naiss.
Universal Estimation of Directed Information: The software is a MATLAB package that can calculate the directed information and mutual information between any two input sequences. It uses the universal sequential probability assignment induced by ContextTree Weighting Method, and has desirable convergence properties.

Haim Permuter received
his B.Sc.
(summa cum laude) from
BenGurion
University
(BGU) and Ph.D. from Stanford University,
both in in Electrical
Engineering, in 1997 and 2008, respectively. Between
19972004, he served as a scientific research officer in an R&D
unit in the Israeli Defense Forces. In summer 2002 he worked for IBM,
Almaden research center. He is a recipient of several rewards including
Eshkol
Fellowship, Wolf Award, Fulbright Fellowship,
Stanford
Graduate
Fellowship, U.S.Israel Binational Science Foundation Bergmann Memorial Award, and Allon
Fellowship. Haim joined the faculty of
Electrical Engineering Department
at BGU in Oct 2008 as a tenuretrack faculty, and is
now a Professor, LuckHille Chair in Electrical Engineering.
Haim
also serves as head of the communication, cyber and information track
in his department. Haim served on the editorial boards of the IEEE
Transactions on Information Theory in 20132016.
