On the Capacity of the K-User Cyclic Gaussian Interference Channel

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper studies the capacity region of a Kuser cyclic Gaussian interference channel, where the kth user interferes with only the (k -' 1) th user (mod K) in the network. Inspired by the work of Etkin, Tse and Wang, who derived a capacity region outer bound for the two-user Gaussian interference channel and proved that a simple Han-Kobayashi power splitting scheme can achieve to within one bit of the capacity region for all values of channel parameters, this paper shows that a similar strategy also achieves the capacity region of the K-user cyclic interference channel to within a constant gap in the weak interference regime.
