Let's say I have a fairly basic network with two senders and two receivers. I'm wondering if I can treat this network as an effective communication channel that takes an input alphabet made up of the input symbols on the senders, and returns a corresponding output alphabet. I could then relatively easily calculate the capacity of this channel and from there say something about the capacity of the network.

I would like to hear any thoughts anyone has on this.
