Linear network coding

Network coding is a field of research founded in a series of papers from the late 1990s to the early 2000s. However, the concept of network coding, in particular linear network coding, appeared much earlier. In a 1978 paper, a scheme for improving the throughput of a two-way communication through a satellite was proposed. In this scheme, two users trying to communicate with each other transmit their data streams to a satellite, which combines the two streams by summing them modulo 2 and then broadcasts the combined stream. Each of the two users, upon receiving the broadcast stream, can decode the other stream by using the information of their own stream.
