And shining, hides with her superior light,
The twinkling beauty of the firmament!

Next, we will investigate for what network topologies the conditions (7) hold for the dissemination Algorithm II.1 so that the network is identifiable.
Subspace Properties of Network Coding and their Applications
Lemma 7: If the dissemination protocol is in the steady state, t ≥ Ts , we could not have Πu (t) = Πv (t) unless nodes u and v have the same set of ancestors at some l level above in the network.
Subspace Properties of Network Coding and their Applications
Up to here, we have shown that assuming the dissemination protocol is in the steady state the subspaces of two arbitrary nodes are equal only if they have the same ancestors at some level above in the network.
Subspace Properties of Network Coding and their Applications
The following result, Theorem 5 states sufficient conditions that make the nodes’ subspace different for dissemination Algorithm II.1.
Subspace Properties of Network Coding and their Applications
Practical Considerations We here argue that our proposed scheme can lead to a practical protocol, where nodes passively collect information during the dissemination, and send once a small amount of information to the central node in charge of the topology inference.
