Transmit diversity is necessary in harsh environments to reduce the required transmit power for achieving a given error performance at a certain transmission rate. In networks, cooperative communication is a well-known technique to yield transmit diversity and network coding can increase the spectral efficiency. These two techniques can be combined to(More)
—Cooperative communications is a well known technique to yield transmit diversity in a multiuser environment. Network coding can increase the spectral efficiency in networks. These two techniques can be combined to achieve a double diversity order for a maximum coding rate Rc = 2/3 on the Multiple Access Relay Channel (MARC), where two sources share a(More)
—Joint network-channel codes (JNCC) can improve the performance of communication in wireless networks, by combining, at the physical layer, the channel codes and the network code as an overall error-correcting code. JNCC is increasingly proposed as an alternative to a standard layered construction, such as the OSI-model. The main performance metrics for(More)
—A class of serial turbo codes admitting low-density parity-check (LDPC) representation is considered. Their parity matrix has a random and a structured part. Thanks to their turbo structure, these codes are linear-time encodable, while they can be decoded as LDPC codes. Previous works enlightened the role of the inner encoder in the error floor region and(More)
