dc.description.abstractWith the rapid development of mobile devices technology, they are becoming very popular and a part of our everyday lives. These devices, which are equipped with wireless radios, such as cellular and WiFi radios, affect almost every aspect of our lives. People use smartphone and tablets to access the Internet, watch videos, chat with their friends, and etc. The wireless connections that these devices provide is more convenient than the wired connections. However, there are two main challenges in wireless networks: error-prone wireless links and network resources limitation. Network coding is widely used to provide reliable data transmission and to use the network resources efficiently. Network coding is a technique in which the original packets are mixed together using algebraic operations. In this dissertation, we study the applications of network coding in making the wireless transmissions robust against transmission errors and in efficient resource management. In many types of data, the importance of different parts of the data are different. For instance, in the case of numeric data, the importance of the data decreases from the most significant to the least significant bit. Also, in multi-layer videos, the importance of the packets in different layers of the videos are not the same. We propose novel data transmission methods in wireless networks that considers the unequal importance of the different parts of the data. In order to provide robust data transmissions and use the limited resources efficiently, we use random linear network coding technique, which is a type of network coding. In the first part of this dissertation, we study the application of network coding in resource management. In order to use the the limited storage of cache nodes efficiently, we propose to use triangular network coding for content distribution. We also design a scalable video-on-demand system, which uses helper nodes and network coding to provide users with their desired video quality. In the second part, we investigate the application of network coding in providing robust wireless transmissions. We propose symbol-level network coding, in which each packet is partitioned to symbols with different importance. We also propose a method that uses network coding to make multi-layer videos robust against transmission errors.
