This paper provides an explicit expression for the capacity region of the two-user broadcast Z channel and proves that the optimal boundary can be achieved by independent encoding of each user. Specifically, the information messages corresponding to each user are encoded independently and the OR of these two encoded streams is transmitted. Nonlinear turbo(More)
Certain degraded broadcast channels (DBCs) have the property that the boundary of the capacity region can be achieved by an encoder that combines independent codebooks (one for each receiver) using the same single-letter function that adds distortion to the channel. We call this the natural encoder for the DBC. Natural encoders are known to achieve the(More)
Let X → Y → Z be a discrete memoryless degraded broadcast channel (DBC) with marginal transition probability matrices TY X and TZX . Denote q as the distribution of the channel input X . For any given q, and H(Y |X) ≤ s ≤ H(Y ), where H(Y |X) is the conditional entropy of Y given X and H(Y ) is the entropy of Y , define the function F ∗ TY X ,TZX (q, s) as(More)
Certain binary asymmetric channels, such as Zchannels in which one of the two crossover probabilities is zero, demand optimal ones densities different from 50%. Some broadcast channels, such as broadcast binary symmetric channels (BBSC) where each component channel is a binary symmetric channel, also require a non-uniform input distribution due to the(More)
In this paper, we propose serially concatenated trellis coded modulations (SCTCMs) that perform consistently close to the available mutual information for periodic erasure channel (PEC), periodic fading channel (PFC) and the compound matrix channel. We use both the maximum-likelihood decoding criteria and iterative decoding criteria to design universal(More)
Consider a memoryless degraded broadcast channel (DBC) in which the channel output is a single-letter function of the channel input and the channel noise. As examples, for the Gaussian broadcast channel (BC), this single-letter function is real scalar addition and for the binary-symmetric BC, this single-letter function is modulo-two addition.

This paper considers the problem of transfer ring a file from one source node to multiple receivers in a peer-to-peer (P2P) network. The objective is to minimize the weighted sum finish time (WSFT) for the one-to-many file transfer where peers have both uplink and downlink bandwidth constraints specified. The static scenario is a file-transfer scheme in(More)

This paper considers the problem of transferring a file from one source node to multiple receivers in a peer-to-peer (P2P) network. The objective is to minimize the weighted sum download time (WSDT) for the one-to-many file transfer. Previous work has shown that, given an order at which the receivers finish downloading, the minimum WSD can be solved in(More)
