Sending a Bivariate Gaussian Source Over a Gaussian MAC With Feedback
Source: ETH Zurich
The authors study the power-versus-distortion trade-off for the transmission of a memoryless bivariate Gaussian source over a two-to-one Gaussian multiple-access channel with perfect causal feedback. In this problem, each of two separate transmitters observes a different component of a memoryless bivariate Gaussian source as well as the feedback from the channel output of the previous time-instants. Based on the observed source sequence and the feedback, each transmitter then describes its source component to the common receiver via an average-power constrained Gaussian multiple-access channel. From the resulting channel output, the receiver wishes to reconstruct both source components with the least possible expected squared-error distortion.
