Constructive Codes for Multi-User Communication Channels

  • Jack Keil Wolf
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 219)


In these notes several constructive coding schemes are presented for specific multi-user communication channels. Both the multi-access channel and the broadcast channel will be considered.
