Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 265)


Broadcast channels have been introduced by Cover in a paper published in 1972 [1] ; as an acknowledgement to the importance of this work he was granted the IEEE award in 1973. By now broadcast channels are firmly established as one of the most relevant channel networks for multi-terminal communication.
