[Invited Talk] Network Coding and Multicast Communications
Miki Yamamoto (Osaka Univ.)
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Max-Flow between a source node and a destination node in a network is generally obtained by Max-Flow Min-Cut Theorem. This theorem can be applied only for point-to-point communications and cannot be applied directly for multicast communications which have point-to-multipoint shape. Max-flow cannot be provided by IP multicast which is the Internet protocol for multicast communications, in general. For multicast communications, it is recently proved that there exists a network coding which provides max-flow between a source node and multiple receivers. In this paper, first, we briefly survey multicast communications in the Internet and discuss advantages of network coding in multicast communications. Furthermore, we also discuss about network technology which enables network coding inside a network.
