Deterministic coding schemes are presented for the additive white gaussian noise two user multiple access and broadcast channels with noiseless feedback. The error probabilities for these schemes approach zero at a rate which is doubly exponential in block length. Outer bounds on the capacity region are also obtained for both channels. The achievable region obtained for the multiple access channel is shown to coincide with the outer bound, yielding a solution of the capacity region for this problem. While the achievable region for the broadcast channel does not coincide with the outer bound, for all cases except that in which one channel is a physically degraded version of the other, the achievable region lies outside the set of rates achievable in the absence of feedback. This is the first case in which it has been demonstrated that feedback can enlarge the capacity region of broadcast channels. Author
