Summary form only given. In this paper, we bound the rate-distortion region for a four-node network. The results are the first known expansion of rate-distortion theory from single-hop networks (every source has a direct connection to each of its destinations), to multihop networks, which allow intermediate nodes. While single-hop network source coding solutions may be applied in multihop networks, such applications require explicit rate allocation for each source-destination pair, and the resulting solutions may be suboptimal. We therefore tackle the multihop network source coding problem directly using a diamond network.
