In the presentation we find an analytic expression for the maximum of the normalized entropy - ¿ieT pi In pi / ¿ieT ipi where the set T is the disjoint union of sets Sn of positive integers that are assigned probabilities Pn, ¿n Pn = 1. This result is applied to the computation of the capacity of weakly (d,k)-constrained sequences that are allowed to violate the (d,k)-constraint with small probability.
