A Deterministic Polynomial-Time Algorithm for Constructing a Multicast Coding Scheme for Linear Deterministic Relay Networks Academic Article uri icon


  • We propose a new way to construct a multicast coding scheme for linear deterministic relay networks. Our construction can be regarded as a generalization of the well-known multicast network coding scheme of Jaggi to linear deterministic relay networks and is based on the notion of flow for a unicast session that was introduced by the authors in earlier work. We present randomized and deterministic polynomial-time versions of our algorithm and show that for a network with $g$ destinations, our deterministic algorithm can achieve the capacity in (g+1) uses of the network and has the fastest construction time among algorithms for this problem. 1963-2012 IEEE.
