Several relations between the Holevo capacity and entanglement-assisted classical capacity of a quantum channel are proved; necessary and sufficient conditions for their coincidence are obtained. In particular, it is shown that these capacities coincide if (respectively, only if) the channel (respectively, the χ-essential part of the channel) belongs to the class of classical-quantum channels (the χ-essential part is a restriction of a channel obtained by discarding all states that are useless for transmission of classical information). The obtained conditions and their corollaries are generalized to channels with linear constraints. By using these conditions it is shown that the question of coincidence of the Holevo capacity and entanglement-assisted classical capacity depends on the form of a constraint. Properties of the difference between quantum mutual information and the χ-function of a quantum channel are explored.
