MAC with action-dependent state information at one encoder Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract: The growing interest in action-dependent channels motivates us to extend the study of action-dependent settings, which until now focused on point-to-point models, to multiple-access channels (MACs). In this paper, we consider a two-user, state-dependent MAC, in which one of the encoders, called the informed (cognitive) encoder, is allowed to take an action that affects the formation of the channel states. Two independent messages are to be sent through the channel:(1) a common message known to both encoders and …
