Consider the optimum strategy for using channel state (“side”) information in transmission over a modulo-additive noise channel, with state-dependent noise, where the receiver does not have access to the side information (SI). Previous work showed that capacity-wise, the optimum transmitter shifts each code letter by a “prediction” of the noise sample based on the SI. We show that this structure achieves also the random-coding error exponent, and, therefore, is optimum at some range of rates below capacity. Specifically, the optimum transmitter predictor minimizes the Renyi entropy of the prediction error; the Renyi order depends on the rate, and goes to one (corresponding to Shannon entropy) for rates close to capacity. In contrast, it is shown that this “prediction strategy” may not be optimal at low transmission rates
