Abstract : The problem of reliable communication in the presence of extreme and unpredictable fading was studied using the techniques of broadcast coding. It was shown that for low signal-to-noise-ratios, the sophisticated broadcast coding strategies devised by Cover and others may not be significantly superior to the much simpler class of timesharing strategies. Papers included such titles as A note on the wideband Gaussian broadcast channel and A model for the study of discrete memoryless very noisy channels.
