The Capacity of Finite Abelian Group Codes Over Symmetric Memoryless Channels

Abstract

The capacity of finite Abelian group codes over symmetric memoryless channels is determined. For certain important examples, such as m -PSK constellations over additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channels, with m a prime power, it is shown that this capacity coincides with the Shannon capacity; i.e., there is no loss in capacity using group codes.
