This paper proposes a novel distributed encoding procedure to realize codes that resemble LT codes (rateless codes for erasure correction) in both structure and performance. For the case of two sources communicating with a single sink via a common relay, this technique separately encodes k/2 symbols of information onto slightly more than k code symbols at… CONTINUE READING
