Effects of the Generation Size and Overlap on Throughput and Complexity in Randomized Linear Network Coding
In this section, we propose the random annex code, a new coding scheme in which generations share randomly chosen packets, as opposed to previously proposed “head-to-toe ” overlapping scheme of .
Effects of the Generation Size and Overlap on Throughput and Complexity in Randomized Linear Network Coding
In addition, we find that our random annex code outperforms the “head-to-toe ” overlapping scheme of [ 7] over a unicast link.
Effects of the Generation Size and Overlap on Throughput and Complexity in Randomized Linear Network Coding
In practice, if N is not a multiple of h, set n = ⌈N/h⌉ and assign the last [N − (n − 1)h] packets to the last (smaller) base generation. 2) To each base generation Bi , add a random annex Ri , consisting of l packets chosen uniformly at random (without replacement) from the N − h = (n − 1)h packets in F \Bi .
Effects of the Generation Size and Overlap on Throughput and Complexity in Randomized Linear Network Coding
The base generation together with its annex constitutes the extended generation Gi = Bi ∪Ri , the size of which is g = h + l .

In the next subsection, we use Corollary 5 and Theorem 15 for a heuristic analysis of the expected throughput performance of the random annex code.
Effects of the Generation Size and Overlap on Throughput and Complexity in Randomized Linear Network Coding
Expected Throughput Analysis: The Algorithm Given the overlapping structure, we next describe an analysis of the expected number of coded packets a receiver needs to collect in order to decode all N information packets of F when they are encoded by the random annex code.
Effects of the Generation Size and Overlap on Throughput and Complexity in Randomized Linear Network Coding
Since in the random annex code, all generations are randomly scheduled with equal probability, for successful decoding, we 0 coded packets belonging to one would like to have at least m′ of the generations, at least m′ 1 belonging to another, and so on.
Effects of the Generation Size and Overlap on Throughput and Complexity in Randomized Linear Network Coding
Although our analysis is heuristic, we will see in the next section that the estimate closely follows the simulated average performance curve of the random annex coding scheme.
