The authors study a number of two-user interference networks with multiple-antenna transmitters/receivers (MIMO), transmitter side information in the form of linear combinations (over an appropriate finite-field) of the information messages, and two-hop relaying. They start with a Cognitive Interference Channel (CIC) where one of the transmitters (non-cognitive) has knowledge of a rank-1 linear combination of the two information messages, while the other transmitter (cognitive) has access to a rank-2 linear combination of the same messages. This is referred to as the Network-Coded CIC, since such linear combination may be the result of some random linear network coding scheme implemented in the backbone wired network.
