Statistical Physics of Irregular Low-Density Parity-Check Codes

Abstract

Low-density parity-check codes with irregular constructions have been recently shown to outperform the most advanced error-correcting codes to date. In this paper we apply methods of statistical physics to study the typical properties of simple irregular codes. We use the replica method to find a phase transition which coincides with Shannon’s coding bound… (More)
