### Abstract

The single rate 2-pair network coding problem is investigated. It is shown that a 2-pair network N = (V,E, {s_{1}, s_{2}}, {t_{1}, t_{2}}) is solvable if and only if (A_{1,2} ∪ A _{2,1}) ∩ (A_{1,1} ∩ A_{2,2}) = ∅, where A_{i,j} is the union of the minimal cuts of the point-to-point network N_{i,j} = (V,E, s_{i}, t_{j}). As a result, a cut-based algorithm can be obtained for solving the single rate 2-pair network coding problem.
