(communications)
A theorem in information theory which states that the highest number of binary digits per second which can be transmitted with arbitrarily small frequency of error is equal to the product of the bandwidth and log2(1 + R), where R is the signal-to-noise ratio.

One of contributions in this work is that based on modified Shannon formula according Modulation and Coding Scheme (MCS) to provide realistic transmission in comparison conventional Shannon formula [3].
[C.sub.Rmax] is the maximum spectral efficiency of relay that depends on the adaptive MCS of modified Shannon formula.
For instance, the classic Shannon formula is based on the observations at periodic times and the values of the cardinal series at these times.
Thus if those probabilities are defined through particle spatial position j out of M available positions, and color c out of C color species, we can write Shannon formula as shown in Eq.
