Performance evaluation of low-density parity-check codes on partial-response channels using density evolution

A method to evaluate the performance of a low-density parity-check (LDPC) code on partial-response (PR) channels in terms of the noise threshold and decoding error is presented. Given a particular codeword or assuming an independent and uniformly distributed (i.u.d.) codeword for transmission, the density-evolution algorithm is used to compute the… (More)
