Generalized input broadcast channels
Abstract
The concept of a generalized input broadcast channel is introduced. The generalized input broadcast channel consists of two or more single input single output channels with a correlation requirement on the symbols to be simultaneously transmitted over each of the component channels. Two easily recognizable special cases exist, one is the broadcast channel where the same symbol is transmitted on each of the component channels and the independent inputs channel where the symbols transmitted on each of the component channels are independent. Other correlation requirements fall somewhere in between these two special cases. The example of a pair of BSCs with a particular symmetric input correlation was investigated. The random coding theorem needed for the generalized input broadcast channel is based on a random coding theorem developed for arbitrary broadcast channels. This random coding theorem for arbitrary broadcast channels is derived from a coding theorem for multiple access channels. Two example broadcast channels are investigated.
