A survey of multi-way channels in information theory: 1961-1976

E. van der Meulen
1977 IEEE Transactions on Information Theory  
The advances in the area of multi-way channels during the period 1961-1976 are described. Shannon's two-way channel, the multiple-access channel, the interference channel, the broadcast channel, and the relay channel are treated successively. Only channel coding aspects are discussed. Thirty-nine open problems are mentioned.
