On the Duality of Gaussian Multiple-Access and Broadcast Channels

Paper Type: Journal Article

Book Title: IEEE Trans. Inform. Theory

Abstract: 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 receivers. We show that the capacity region of the BC (both constant and fading) can be written in terms of the capacity region of the dual MAC, and vice versa. We can use this result to find the capacity region of the MAC if the capacity region of only the BC is known, and vice versa. For fading channels we show duality under ergodic capacity, but duality also holds for different capacity definitions for fading channels such as outage capacity and minimum-rate capacity. Using duality, many results known for only one of the two channels can be extended to the dual channel as well.
