Successive Refinement of Vector Sources Under Individual Distortion Criteria

The successive refinement problem is extended to vector sources where individual distortion constraints are posed on each vector component. For vector Gaussian sources with squared-error distortion, a single-letter rate-distortion characterization is inherited from the previously studied Gaussian multiple descriptions problem with covariance distortion constraints. Though this characterization is amenable to well-known numerical convex optimization techniques, an analytical solution is difficult to obtain in full generality even for 2-D sources. In this paper, the special case of successive refinability is addressed analytically.
