This dissertation is concerned with the design and analysis of algorithms that address two related issues in communication networks, namely erasures and broadcast. Erasures are an appropriate model for communication channels from a network layer perspective. A class of efficient and flexible codes known as fountain codes, is available to deal with erasures for the basic erasure channel. However, in the network applications that we consider, it remains a challenging problem to design efficient… CONTINUE READING
