A new algorithm to construct good low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes with large stopping sets is presented. Since the minimum stopping set characterizes an LDPC code, searching for stopping sets in LDPC codes is an important issue. Large minimum stopping sets avoid the LDPC code to get trapped in cycles specially on the binary erasure channel. Dealing with stopping sets is not an easy task since their discovering is a well known NP hard problem. Conversely, we propose an algorithm in order… Expand
