Channel coding for network communication: an information theoretic perspective
Channel coding helps a communication system to combat noise and interference by adding "redundancy" to the source message. Theoretical fundamentals of channel coding in point-to-point systems have been intensively studied in the research area of information theory, which was proposed by Claude Shannon in his celebrated work in 1948. A set of landmark results have been developed to characterize the performance limitations in terms of the rate and the reliability tradeoff bounds. However, unlike its success in point-to-point systems, information theory has not yielded as rich results in network ...
