Although polar codes can achieve the channel capacity in discrete memoryless channel, the practical performance of such codes, especially for the short ones, is still a subject of much needed improvement. The aim of this paper is to investigate increasing the Hamming distances of polar codes while maintaining their linearity property. We propose two methods; in the first, the code-rate remains unchanged, while in the latter, which produces superior performance, a modest reduction in the code… CONTINUE READING
