—An iterative algorithm employing decision feedback provided by either an equalizer or a channel decoder is proposed in order to compensate for the phase noise resulting from imperfect oscillators in orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. In the proposed algorithm, the received OFDM symbol is partitioned into subblocks in the time domain(More)
—The asymptotic performance of a polar code under successive cancellation decoding is determined by the exponent of its polarizing matrix. We first prove that the partial distances of a polarizing matrix constructed from the Kronecker product are simply expressed as a product of those of its component matrices. We then show that the exponent of the(More)
In this paper we propose a stopping rule for adaptive turbo equalizers based on low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes. Using an extrinsic information transfer (EXIT) chart, we analyze the convergence behavior of a turbo equalizer and devise an adaptive turbo equalizer with stopping rule. It monitors the status of iterative decoding and stops performing(More)
