On the link between the synchronization recovery and soft decoding of Variable Length Codes


Methodologies to analyze error recovery properties of Variable Length Codes (VLCs) have been introduced in [1] and [2]. In this paper, we extend these methods to analyze the error-resilience of VLCs when soft decoding with length constraint strategies are applied at the decoder side. The approach allows in particular to compute the amount of information… (More)
