—We propose a generic algorithm for the construction of efficient reversible variable-length codes (RVLCs) and variable-length error-correcting (VLEC) codes, which optimizes the code-word length distribution. The algorithm may be applied to any existing codeword selection mechanism, and it is capable of generating codes of higher efficiency in comparison to(More)
— A novel sequential estimation method is proposed for the initial synchronization of pseudonoise (PN) signals derived from m-sequences. This sequential estimation method is designed based on the principle of iterative soft-in-soft-out (SISO) decoding , and hence we refer to it as the Recursive Soft Sequential Estimation (RSSE) acquisition scheme. The RSSE(More)
—This paper compares the mean acquisition time (MAT) performance of two serial search acquisition schemes over frequency-selective multipath Rayleigh fading channels. Both the conventional cell-by-cell detection and the novel joint two-cell detection are characterized. In contrast to the majority of published results considering only one correct timing(More)
Luby Transform codes (LT) were originally designed for the Binary Erasure Channel (BEC) encountered owing to randomly dropped packets in the statistical multiplexing aided classic wireline-based Internet, where transmitted packets are not affected by the fading or noise of the propagation environment of the wireless Internet. For the sake of transmitting(More)
– In Bit-Interleaved Coded Modulation (BICM) the coding and modulation schemes were jointly optimized for the sake of attaining the best possible performance when communicating over fading wireless communication channels. The iterative decoding scheme of BICM (BICM-ID) invoking an appropriate bit-to-symbol mapping strategy enhances its achievable(More)
—In this paper, we investigate the issue of pseudo noise (PN) code acquisition in single-carrier and multicarrier (MC) direct sequence code-division multiple-access (DS-CDMA) systems, when the channel is modeled by frequency-selective Nakagami-fading. The PN code acquisition performance of single-carrier and MC DS-CDMA systems is analyzed and compared when(More)
