For iterative decoding of turbo codes and low-density parity check (LDPC) codes quite often log-likelihood ratios called L-values are used. A major role in the decoding algorithms is played by extrinsic information which is obtained as L-value of a modulo 2 combination of several bits. This leads in the L-domain to the so-called box-plus operation. In this paper we introduce a complementary box-minus operation. Based on it a low-complexity but powerful belief propagation algorithm for decoding… CONTINUE READING
