This comprehensive treatment of network information theory and its applications provides the first unified coverage of both classical and recent results.Expand

This paper provides a definition of delay in ad hoc networks and obtains optimal throughput-delay trade-off in fixed and mobile wireless networks.Expand

A source of independent identically distributed (i.i.d.) discrete random variables with joint probability mass function p(u,v) and common part w=f(u)=g(v) in the sense of Witsenhausen, Gacs, and Korner. It is shown that such a source can be sent with arbitrarily small probability of error over a multiple access channel (MAC) .Expand

We find that the distortion constraints D_{0}, D_{1), D_{2} are achievable if there exists a probability mass distribution p(x)p(\hat{x}_{1}, X_{2}, \hat{X}_{0}|x) with Ed(X,\hat{ x}_{m})\leq D_{m}, m=0,1,2.Expand

We show that the optimal throughput-delay tradeoff is given by D(n)=Theta(nT(n)), where T(n) and D( n) are the throughput and delay scaling, respectively.Expand

The paper considers the problem of minimizing the energy used to transmit packets over a wireless link via lazy schedules that judiciously vary packet transmission times.Expand
