Mismatch capacity characterizes the highest information rate for a channel under a prescribed decoding metric, and is thus a highly relevant fundamental performance metric when dealing with many practically important communication scenarios. Compared with the frequently used generalized mutual information (GMI), the LM rate has been known as a tighter lower bound of the mismatch capacity. The computation of the LM rate, 1 1 To our best knowledge, the name LM rate first appeared in the reference . The capital letter LM seems to be the abbreviation of Lower bound on the Mismatch capacity. however, has been a difficult task, due to the fact that the LM rate involves a maximization over a function of the channel input, which becomes challenging as the input alphabet size grows, and direct numerical methods (e.g., interior point methods) suffer from intensive memory and computational resource requirements. Noting that the computation of the LM rate can also be formulated as an entropy-based optimization problem with constraints, in this work, we transform the task into an optimal transport (OT) problem with an extra constraint. This allows us to efficiently and accurately accomplish our task by using the well-known Sinkhorn algorithm. Indeed, only a few iterations are required for convergence, due to the fact that the formulated problem does not contain additional regularization terms. Moreover, we convert the extra constraint into a root-finding procedure for a one-dimensional monotonic function. Numerical experiments demonstrate the feasibility and efficiency of our OT approach to the computation of the LM rate.
