Variable Length Codes for Degraded Broadcast Channels

This paper investigates the achievable rates using variable length codes when transmitting independent informationover a degraded broadcast channel. In this note, we define the transmission rates from the perspective of the receivers and allow the decoders to make their decision at a different instant of time. We give an outer bound to the region of achievable rates, as well as examples of code that achieve this bound in some settings.
