Danilo Silva, "Error Control for Network Coding".  Jul 2009

Network coding has emerged as a new paradigm for communication in networks, allowing packets to be algebraically combined at internal nodes, rather than simply routed or replicated. The very ...

Ali Nazari, "New Bounds on the Maximal Error Exponent for Multiple-Access Channels".  Jun 2009

The problem of bounding the reliability function of a multiple-access channel (MAC) is studied. An upper bound on the minimum Bhattacharyya distance between codeword pairs is derived. For a ...

Nihar Jindal Sriram Vishwanath Andrea Goldsmith, "On the Duality of Gaussian Multiple-Access and Broadcast Channels".  May 2004

We define a duality between Gaussian multiple-access channels (MACs) and Gaussian broadcast channels (BCs). The dual channels we consider have the same channel gains and the same noise power at all ...
