The lecture studies the building blocks of complex communications networks, i.e., the multiple-access channel, the broadcast channel, the relay channel and the interference channel, their achievable rates and capacity regions including coding and decoding schemes.
- Review point-to-point channel capacity and coding theorem
- Strong typical sequences and their properties
- Multiple-Access Channel: Capacity region compared to TDMA/FDMA/SDMA/NOMA
- Broadcast Channel: degraded BC capacity region, non-degraded BC achievable rate region and converse
- Interference Channel: very strong, strong, weak interference capacity region, medium interference achievable rate region and converse
- Relay Channel: achievable schemes amplify-and-forward, decode-and-forward, compress-and-forward, estimate-and-forward
