Cooperation in multiple access channels in the presence of partial state information Conference Paper uri icon


  • Abstract: We investigate the capacity of a multiple access channel with cooperating encoders where partial state information is known to each encoder in a non-causal way and full state information is known to the decoder. The cooperation between the encoders has a two-fold purpose: to generate empirical state coordination between the encoders, and to share information about the private messages that each encoder has. For two-way cooperation, this two-fold purpose is achieved by double-binning, where the first layer of …
