Capacity of a Class of Multicast Tree Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors characterize the capacity of a new class of single-source multicast discrete memoryless relay networks having a tree topology in which the root node is the source and each parent node in the graph has at most one noisy child node and any number of noiseless child nodes. This class of multicast tree networks includes the class of diamond networks studied by Kang and Ulukus as a special case, where they showed that the capacity can be strictly lower than the cut-set bound.
