Abstract:This thesis introduces a framework of channel emulation. An emulator is defined as a pair of channels, that converts one channel to another channel with possibly different input and output alphabets. With the concept of channel comparison, we define different types of channel emulation and derive the relationship between these types of emulation. We prove the error probability bound of concatenated codes from the channel emulation viewpoint, and derive the evolution of deficiencies of polar codes. We show that the analysis from the emulation and deficiency viewpoint matches the existing results in coding theory, and expect that this viewpoint can inspire the study of constructing long network codes using a layered black box architecture.
