We show that the deterministic broadcast channel, where a single source transmits to M receivers across a deterministic mechanism, may be reduced, via a rate-splitting transformation, to another (2M−1)-receiver deterministic broadcast channel problem where a successive encoding approach suffices. Analogous to rate-splitting for the multiple access channel and source-splitting for the Slepian-Wolf problem, all achievable rates (including non-vertices) apply. This amounts to significant complexity reduction at the encoder.
