In this paper, we describe and analyze the source and channel coding properties of a class of sparse graphical codes based on compounding a low-density generator matrix (LDGM) code with a low-density parity-check (LDPC) code. Our first pair of theorems establishes that there exist codes from this ensemble, with all degrees remaining bounded independently of block length, that are simultaneously optimal for both channel coding and source coding with binary data when encoding and decoding are performed optimally. More precisely, in the context of lossy compression, we prove that finite-degree constructions can achieve any pair (R, D) on the rate-distortion curve of the binary symmetric source. In the context of channel coding, we prove that the same finite-degree codes can achieve any pair (C, p) on the capacity-noise curve of the binary symmetric channel (BSC). Next, we show that our compound construction has a nested structure that can be exploited to achieve the Wyner-Ziv bound for source coding with side information (SCSI), as well as the Gelfand-Pinsker bound for channel coding with side information (CCSI). Although the results described here are based on optimal encoding and decoding, the proposed graphical codes have sparse structure and high girth that renders them well suited to message passing and other efficient decoding procedures.
