Summary: 
Two kinds of problems - multiterminal hypothesis testing and one-to-many lossy source coding - are investigated in a unified way. It is demonstrated that a simple key idea, which is developed by Iriyama for one-to-one source coding systems, can be applied to multiterminal source coding systems. In particular, general bounds on the error exponents for multiterminal hypothesis testing and one-to-many lossy source coding are given.
