Genetic Algorithms for Better Turbo Codes
ABSTRACT Throughout the past decade, the discovery of turbo codes has been considered as one of the most successful researches whose impact significantly enhanced the quality of modern communication systems. To obtain an excellent performance, it is necessary to design robust turbo code interleaver. In the recent time, there were several attempts to apply genetic algorithms to improve the performance of turbo codes by optimization of the interleaver. This paper investigates the optimization of turbo code interleaver with free distance as a fitness function.
