—We consider a directed acyclic network with multiple sources and multiple terminals where each terminal is interested in decoding the sum of independent sources generated at the source nodes. We describe a procedure whereby a simple undirected graph can be used to construct such a sum-network and demonstrate an upper bound on its computation rate.(More)
—A sum-network is a directed acyclic network in which all terminal nodes demand the 'sum' of the independent information observed at the source nodes. Many characteristics of the well-studied multiple-unicast network communication problem also hold for sum-networks due to a known reduction between instances of these two problems. Our main result is that(More)
A sum-network is an instance of a network coding problem over a directed acyclic network in which each terminal node wants to compute the sum over a finite field of the information observed at all the source nodes. Many characteristics of the well-studied multiple unicast network communication problem also hold for sum-networks due to a known reduction(More)
