Some Basic Mathematical Problems of Multiuser Shannon Theory



At the present state of development of multiuser Shannon theory, the main interest is in single-letter characterizations of achievable rate regions (capacity regions) of various source (channel) networks, such as source coding with side information, multiple descriptions, and broadcast channels. The mathematical background of most such problems is very similar, namely, an entropy or image size characterization in the sense of [1].
