A new bounded-distance (BD) decoding algorithm is presented for binary linear (n, k , d ) block codes on additive white Gaussian noise channels. The algorithm is based on the generalized minimum distance (GMD) decoding algorithm of Forney using the acceptance criterion of Taipale and Pursley (GMDRP). It is shown that the GMD/TP decoding algorithm is a BD decoding algorithm with effective error coefficient ( ). It is also shown that the decision regions of GMDRP are good inner approximations of… CONTINUE READING
