Multilevel diversity codingwas introduced in recent work by Roche and Yeung. In a multilevel diversity coding system, an information source is encoded by a number of encoders. There is a set of decoders, partitioned into multiple levels, with each decoder having access to a certain subset of the encoders. The reconstructions of the source by decoders within the same level are identical and are subject to the same distortion criterion. Inspired by applications in computer communication and fault… CONTINUE READING
