A class of algebraically structured quasi-cyclic (QC) low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes and their convolutional counterparts is presented. The QC codes are described by sparse parity-check matrices comprised of blocks of circulant matrices. The sparse parity-check representation allows for practical graph-based iterative message-passing decoding. Based(More)
The goal of this paper is to establish which practical routing schemes for wireless networks are most suitable for power-limited and bandwidth-limited communication regimes. We regard channel state information (CSI) at the receiver and point-to-point capacity-achieving codes for the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel as practical features,(More)
This paper proposes a network coding approach to cooperative diversity featuring the algebraic superposition of channel codes over a finite field. The scenario under consideration is one in which two ldquopartnersrdquo - node A and node B - cooperate in transmitting information to a single destination; each partner transmits both locally generated(More)
This paper presents a low-complexity interleaver design that facilitates the high throughput turbo decoding required for next generation wireless systems. Specifically, it addresses the interleaver design issues that arise when several Log-MAP processors are used in parallel to improve turbo decoding throughput. In such a parallel decoder, memory access(More)
This paper describes the design and analysis of low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes over rings and shows how these codes, when mapped onto appropriate signal constellations, can be used to effect bandwidth-efficient modulation. Specifically, LDPC codes are constructed over the integer rings /spl Zopf//sub m/ and G/sub m//sup 2/ and mapped onto phase-shift(More)
Since the discovery of turbo codes 20 years ago and the subsequent re-discovery of low-density parity-check codes a few years later, the field of channel coding has experienced a number of major advances. Up until that time, code designers were usually happy with performance that came within a few decibels of the Shannon Limit, primarily due to(More)
