Summary form only given. The following problem has been treated: three dependent users are physically separated but communicate with each other by satellite. Each user generates data which it stores locally. In addition, each user sends a message to the satellite. The satellite processes the messages received from the users and broadcasts one common message to all three users. Each user must be capable of reconstructing the data of the other two users on the basis of the broadcast message and its own stored data. The minimum amount of information that must be transmitted to and from the satellite has been determined.
