Abstract: In this thesis, the problem of transmitting data in the form of multicast andbroadcast traffic has been studied. The traffic can be from a real-time appli-cation which has a short block length or it can be a general broadcast trafficin an ad-hoc network. The goal is to reduce the total number of transmis-sions which results in reducing the delay and improving the energy efficiencyof the system. Toward this goal, network coding and fountain-codes solutionsare studied in this thesis. For the case of broadcasting, a new fountain-codemethod is proposed. Our results show that this method increases the energyefficiency compared to other methods that have the same order of complexity.For the case of multicasting, we provide a finite block length analysis on theeffect of erasure on overhead. We use this analysis to investigate a method ofpacket construction along with using fountain codes.
