Error bounds for trellis-coded MPSK on a fading mobile satellite channel

  journal={IEEE Trans. Communications},
In this paper, analytical performance bounds are presented for trellis-coded MPSK, transmitted over a satellite­ based land mobile channel. Upper bounds are evaluated using the well-known transfer function bounding technique, and lower bounds are achieved through knowledge of exact pairwise error probabilities. In order to analyze practical trellis-codes (four or more states), the uniform properties displayed by a certain class of trellis-codes are exploited, enabling the encoder transfer… CONTINUE READING
