The total capacity is evaluated for an arbitrary two-user multiple-access channel (MAC) with a binary output. The basic idea is to subdivide the MAC into a finite number of elementary MACs, i.e., a two-user MAC with binary inputs and binary outputs. These elementary MACs are classified further into two cases by the type of channel matrix. For each case, a necessary and sufficient condition of the total capacity is established by partially converting the ordinary Kuhn-Tucker condition. The… CONTINUE READING
