Abstract: We present two upper bounds on the capacity of the i.i.d. binary deletion channel, where each bit is independently deleted with a fixed probability d. The first can be numerically evaluated for any fixed d. The second provides an asymptotic upper bound as d goes to 1. These appeal to be the fiist nontrivial upper bounds for this probabilistic deletion channel. ©2007 IEEE.
