In this paper 1 we consider the communication problem that involves transmission of correlated sources over broadcast channels. We consider a graph-based framework for this information transmission problem. The system involves a source coding module and a channel coding module. In the source coding module, the sources are efficiently represented using a nearly semi-regular bipartite graph, and the in the channel coding module, the edges of this graph are reliably transmitted over a broadcast

In particular, in this paper, we restrict our attention to the source coding module, building on our earlier work on the channel coding module. We provide an information-theoretic characterization of the rate of growth of the exponent (as a function of the number source samples) of the size of such graphs that can reliably represent a pair of correlated sources.
