A Unified Approach to Hybrid Coding

Hybrid analog-digital coding has been used for several communication scenarios, such as joint source-channel coding of Gaussian sources over Gaussian channels and relay communication over Gaussian networks. In this paper, a generalized hybrid coding technique is proposed for communication over discrete memoryless and Gaussian systems, and its utility is demonstrated via three examples-lossy joint source-channel coding over multiple access channels, channel coding over two-way relay channels, and channel coding over diamond networks. The corresponding coding schemes recover and extend several existing results in the literature.
