Capacity of a More General Class of Relay Channels

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Capacity has been found for degraded, reversely degraded, full feedback, semi-deterministic, orthogonal relay channels, also for a class of deterministic relay channels and a class of modulo sum relay channels. The authors indicate what the relay decodes and forwards with one auxiliary random variable having bounded cardinality and attempt to define a more general class of relay channels in order to unify most of known capacity theorems into one capacity theorem by considering additional assumptions imposed to the definition of those channels. In other words, the relay channel inputs are dependent as in multiple access channel with arbitrarily correlated sources and here, they do for the relay channel the same as Cover, El Gamal and Salehi has done for the multiple access channel.
