Abstract

This paper studies the capacity of a class of discrete memoryless interference channels (DMICs), where interference is defined analogous to that of a Gaussian interference channel with one-sided weak interference. The sum-rate capacity of this class of channels is determined. As with the Gaussian case, the sum-rate capacity is achieved by letting the transceiver pair subject to interference communicate at a rate such that its message can be decoded at the unintended receiver using single user detection. It is also established that this class of DMICs is equivalent in capacity region to certain degraded interference channels. This allows the construction of capacity outer-bounds using the capacity regions of associated degraded broadcast channels. The same technique is then used to determine the sum-rate capacity of DMICs with mixed interference as defined in this paper. The obtained capacity bounds and sum-rate capacities are used to resolve the capacities of several new DMICs.
