We consider sparse regression codes (SPARCs) over complex AWGN channels. Such codes can be efficiently decoded by an approximate message passing (AMP) decoder, whose performance can be predicted via so-called state evolution in the large-system limit. In this paper, we mainly focus on how to use concatenation of SPARCs and cyclic redundancy check (CRC) codes on the encoding side and use list decoding on the decoding side to improve the finite-length performance of the AMP decoder for SPARCs…
