On the Achievable Region for Interference Networks with Point-to-Point Codes
This paper studies evaluation of the capacity region for interference networks with Point-to-Point (p2p) capacity-achieving codes. Such capacity region has recently been characterized as union of several sub-regions each of which has distinctive operational characteristics. Detailed evaluation of this region, therefore, can be accomplished in a very simple manner by acknowledging such characteristics, which, in turn, provides an insight for a simple implementation scenario. Completely generalized message assignment which is also practically relevant is considered in this paper, and it is shown to provide strictly larger achievable rates than what traditional message assignment does when a receiver with joint decoding capability is used.
