Deterministic Algorithm for Coded Cooperative Data Exchange

  • Conference paper
Quality, Reliability, Security and Robustness in Heterogeneous Networks (QShine 2010)

Abstract

We consider the problem of cooperative data exchange in a group of wireless clients. In this problem each client initially holds a subset of packets and needs to obtain all packets held by other clients. Each client can broadcast its own packets or a combinations thereof to other clients via an error-free broadcast channel. Assuming that clients know which packets are available to other clients, our goal is to minimize the total number of transmissions needed to satisfy the demands of all clients. We present a deterministic algorithm that computes an optimal solution to this problem in polynomial time.
