An intuitive outer bound for the multiterminal source coding problem is given. The proposed bound explicitly couples the rate distortion functions for each source and correlation measures which derive from a “strong” data processing inequality. Unlike many standard outer bounds, the proposed bound is not parameterized by a continuous family of auxiliary… CONTINUE READING
