Rate Region for a Class of Delay Mitigating Codes and P2P Networks

This paper identifies the relevance of a distributed source coding problem first formulated by Yeung and Zhang in 1999 to two applications in network design: the design of delay mitigating codes, and the design of network coded P2P networks. When transmitting time-sensitive frames from a source to a destination over a multipath network using a collection of coded packets, the decoding requirements determine which subsets of packets will be sufficient for decoding which frames. The rate region of packet sizes consistent with these requirements is shown to be an instance of the aforementioned distributed source coding problem.
