Review:

"Computer scientists, electrical engineers, and related professionals provide a tutorial introduction and survey of practical applications of network coding in various areas of networking and distributed computing. They write for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students who have a general background in networking but no prior exposure to network coding techniques or applications of network coding. The topics include harnessing network coding in wireless systems, network coding in the real world, network coding and user cooperation for streaming and download services in long term evolution networks, bounds and algorithms for secret and reliable communications, and network coding in disruption tolerant networks. Academic Press is an imprint of Elsevier."--Reference and Research Book News, October 2012
