Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) algorithm, which was initially proposed for numerical function optimization, has been increasingly used for clustering. However, when it is directly applied to clustering, the performance of ABC is lower than expected. This paper proposes an improved ABC algorithm for clustering, denoted as EABC. EABC uses a key initialization(More)
In this paper, we investigate the construction of time-varying convolutional low-density paritycheck (LDPC) codes derived from block LDPC codes based on improved progressive edge growth (PEG) method. Different from the conventional PEG algorithm, the parity-check matrix is initialized by inserting certain patterns. More specifically, the submatrices along(More)
— Low-Density Parity-Check (LDPC) codes are usually decoded by running an iterative belief-propagation, or message-passing, algorithm over the factor graph of the code. The traditional message-passing schedule consists of updating all the variable nodes in the graph, using the same pre-update information, followed by updating all the check nodes of the(More)
