—One of the unexpected breakdowns in the existing theory of quantum serial turbo coding is that a quantum convolutional encoder cannot simultaneously be recursive and non-catastrophic. These properties are essential for a quantum turbo code to have an unbounded minimum distance and for its iterative decoding algorithm to converge, respectively. Here, we(More)
—High detection complexity is the main impediment in future Gigabit-wireless systems. However, a quantum-based detector is capable of simultaneously detecting hundreds of user signals by virtue of its inherent parallel nature. This in turn requires near-capacity quantum error correction codes for protecting the constituent qubits of the quantum detector(More)
—The iterative decoder of Turbo Trellis Coded Modulation (TTCM) exchanges extrinsic information between the constituent TCM decoders, which imposes a high computational complexity at the receiver. Therefore we conceive the syndrome-based block decoding of TTCM, which is capable of reducing the decoding complexity by disabling the decoder, when syndrome(More)
—Powerful Quantum Error Correction Codes (QECCs) are required for stabilizing and protecting fragile qubits against the undesirable effects of quantum decoherence. Similar to classical codes, hashing bound approaching QECCs may be designed by exploiting a concatenated code structure, which invokes iterative decoding. Therefore, in this paper we provide an(More)
