A method of channel polarization, proposed by Arikan, allows us to construct efficient capacity-achieving channel codes. In the original work, binary input discrete memoryless channels are considered. A special case of q-ary channel polarization is considered by Şaşoğlu, Telatar, and Arikan. In this paper, we consider more general(More)
Polarization phenomenon over any finite field Fq with size q being a power of a prime is considered. This problem is a generalization of the original proposal of channel polarization by Arıkan for the binary field, as well as its extension to a prime field by Şaşoğlu, Telatar, and Arıkan. In this paper, a necessary and sufficient condition of a matrix over(More)
Polar coding, proposed by Arıkan, makes it possible to construct capacity-achieving codes for symmetric binaryinput discrete memoryless channels, with low encoding and decoding complexity. Complexity of the originally proposed code construction method, however, grows exponentially in the blocklength unless a channel is the binary erasure channel. Recently,(More)
Channel polarization is a method of constructing capacity achieving codes for symmetric binary-input discrete memoryless channels (B-DMCs) [1]. In the original paper, the construction complexity is exponential in the blocklength. In this paper, a new construction method for arbitrary symmetric binary memoryless channel (B-MC) with linear complexity in the(More)
Polar codes, introduced by Arıkan, achieve symmetric capacity of any discrete memoryless channels under low encoding and decoding complexity. Recently, non-binary polar codes have been investigated. In this paper, we calculate error probability of non-binary polar codes constructed on the basis of Reed-Solomon matrices by numerical simulations. It is(More)
Recently, Arıkan introduced the method of channel polarization on which one can construct efficient capacity-achieving codes, called polar codes, for any binary discrete memoryless channel. In the thesis, we show that decoding algorithm of polar codes, called successive cancellation decoding, can be regarded as belief propagation decoding, which has been(More)

Recently, Vontobel showed the relationship between Bethe free energy and annealed free energy for protograph factor graph ensembles. In this paper, annealed free energy of any random regular factor graph ensembles are connected to Bethe free energy. The annealed free energy is expressed as the solution of maximization problem whose stationary condition(More)

The Bethe approximation is a well-known approximation of the partition function used in statistical physics. Recently, an equality relating the partition function and its Bethe approximation was obtained for graphical models with binary variables by Chertkov and Chernyak. In this equality, the multiplicative error in the Bethe approximation is represented(More)
