We examine the issue of separation for multiple access channels. We demonstrate that source-channel separation holds for noisy multiple access channels, when the channel operates over a common finite field. This robustness of separation is predicated on the fact that noise and inputs are independent, and we examine the loss from failure of separation when noise is input dependent.
