Some Results on Distributed Source Coding for Interactive Function Computation

  title={Some Results on Distributed Source Coding for Interactive Function Computation},
  author={Nan Ma and Prakash Ishwar},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Information Theory},
A two-terminal interactive distributed source coding problem with alternating messages for function computation at both locations is studied. For any number of messages, a computable characterization of the rate region is provided in terms of single-letter information measures. While interaction is useless in terms of the minimum sum-rate for lossless source reproduction at one or both locations, the gains can be arbitrarily large for function computation even when the sources are independent… CONTINUE READING
