  • Entropy vectors and network codes

    We consider a network multicast example that relates the solvability of the multicast problem with the existence of an entropy function. As a result, we provide an alternative approach to the proving of the insufficiency of linear (and abelian) network codes and demonstrate the utility of non-Shannon inequalities to tighten outer bounds on network coding capacity regions.

    Dualities Between Entropy Functions and Network Codes

    This paper provides a new duality between entropy functions and network codes. Given a function $g\geq 0$ defined on all proper subsets of $N$ random variables, we provide a construction for a network multicast problem which is solvable if and only if $g$ is entropic. The underlying network topology is fixed and the multicast problem depends on $g$ only through edge capacities and source rates. Relaxing the requirement that the domain of $g$ be subsets of random variables, we obtain a similar...

    The minimal set of Ingleton inequalities

    The Ingleton-LP bound is an outer bound for the multicast capacity region, assuming the use of linear network codes. Computation of the bound is performed on a polyhedral cone obtained by taking the intersection of half-spaces induced by the basic (Shannon-type) inequalities and Ingleton inequalities. This paper simplifies the characterization of this cone, by obtaining the unique minimal set of Ingleton inequalities. As a result, the effort required for computation of the Ingleton-LP bound c...

    Non-linear Information Inequalities

    We construct non-linear information inequalities from Mat´uˇs’ infinite series of linear information inequalities. Each single non-linear inequality is sufficiently strong to prove that the closure of the set of all entropy functions is not polyhedral for four or more random variables, a fact that was already established using the series of linear inequalities. To the best of our knowledge, they are the first non-trivial examples of non-linear information inequalities....

    On Random Network Coding for Multicast

    Random linear network coding is a particularly decentralized approach to the multicast problem. Use of random network codes introduces a non-zero probability however that some sinks will not be able to successfully decode the required sources. One of the main theoretical motivations for random network codes stems from the lower bound on the probability of successful decoding reported by Ho et. al. (2003). This result demonstrates that all sinks in a linearly solvable network can successfully ...
