Spatially-Coupled Codes and Threshold Saturation on Intersymbol-Interference Channels


Recently, it has been observed that terminated low-density-parity-check (LDPC) convolutional codes (or spatially-coupled codes) appear to approach capacity universally across the class of binary memoryless channels. This is facilitated by the “threshold saturation” effect whereby the belief-propagation (BP) threshold of the spatially-coupled ensemble is… (More)
