Can a sender encode a pair of messages (m0, m1) jointly, and send their encoding over (say) a binary erasure channel, so that the receiver can decode exactly one of the two messages and the sender does not know which one?

How does one store a graph in the database? Typically the vertices are labelled by a set {1, 2, ..., n}. The edges can be denoted in many different ways: adjacency matrix, incidence matrix, adjacency list, to name a few.
