Coherent trellis-coded modulation (TCM) systems employing diversity combining are analyzed. Three different kinds of combining are considered: maximal ratio, equal gain, and selection combining (SC). First, the cutoff rate parameter is derived for equal gain combining (EGC) and SC assuming transmission over a fully interleaved channel with flat slow(More)
| This paper examines the gains that can be obtained when maximum a posteriori (MAP) decoding is used to recover correlated and/or non-equiprobable data that has been channel encoded prior to transmission over very noisy AWGN and Rayleigh fading channels. Most compression algorithms leave some residual redundancy in the output bit stream; this redundancy {(More)
This paper presents the design of 8PSK space-time (ST) trellis codes suitable for rapid fading channels. The proposed codes utilize the design criteria of ST codes over rapid fading channels. Two different approaches have been used. The first approach maximizes the symbol-wise Hamming distance (HD) between signals leaving from or entering to the same(More)
This paper presents the performance of Space-Time (ST) codes over rapid fading channels. A tight upper bound on the pairwise error probability (PWEP) of ST codes over rapid fading channels is derived. Also, an upper bound on the bit error probability (BEP) is evaluated using the derived PWEP. The existing and new bounds are evaluated for different QPSK ST(More)
An unequal error protection approach for the reliable communication of visual information over additive white Gaussian noise channels is proposed and studied. This method relies on a bandwidth-efficient coded modulation scheme that employs selective channel coding and transmission energy allocation in conjunction with sequence maximum a posteriori(More)
