The transition diagram of a discrete memoryless channel with three input symbols and three output symbols is shown in the figure. The transition probabilities are as marked. The parameter $$\alpha$$ lies in the interval [0.25, 1]. The value of .. for which the capacity of this channel is maximized, is __________ (rounded off to two decimal places).

Consider communication over a memoryless binary symmetric channel using a (7, 4) Hamming code. Each transmitted bit is received correctly with probability (1 $$-$$ $$\in$$), and flipped with probability $$\in$$. For each codeword transmission, the receiver performs minimum Hamming distance decoding, and correctly decodes the message bits if and only if the channel introduces at most one bit error. For $$\in$$ = 0.1, the probability that a transmitted codeword is decoded correctly is __________ (rounded off to two decimal places).
