Three classic results on the AVC

I wrote a summary of three classical results on arbitrarily varying channels that I think make a nice story. The first is the original 1960 proof by Blackwell, Breiman, and Thomasian. The second is Ahlswede’s elimination technique. The last is the symmetrizability result of Csiszár and Narayan. Together, these three results settle some basic questions regarding arbitrarily varying channels, and I tried to make the exposition self-contained and readable by people who have had a basic course in information theory.
