The present text aims to be a tutorial on the basics of the theory of network coding. The intent is a transparent presentation without necessarily presenting all results in their full generality. Part I is devoted to network coding for the transmission from a single source node to other nodes in the network. It starts with describing examples on network coding in the next section. Part II deals with the problem under the more general circumstances when there are multiple source nodes each intending to transmit to a different set of destination nodes.

Error-correcting codes are clever ways of representing data so that one can recover the original information even if parts of it are corrupted. The basic idea is to introduce redundancy so that the original information can be recovered ...
