Bobak Nazer Michael Gastpar, "Compute-and-Forward: Harnessing Interference Through Structured Codes".  Oct 2011

Interference is usually viewed as an obstacle to communication in wireless networks. This paper proposes a new strategy, compute-and-forward, that exploits interference to obtain significantly higher ...

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 ...
