    ABSTRACT: A numerical method has been presented to determine the noise thresholds of low density parity-check (LDPC) codes that employ the message passing decoding algorithm on the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel. In this paper, we apply the technique to the uncorrelated flat Rayleigh fading channel. Using a nonlinear code optimization technique, we optimize irregular LDPC codes for such a channel. The thresholds of the optimized irregular LDPC codes are very close to the Shannon limit for this channel. For example, at rate one-half, the optimized irregular LDPC code has a threshold only 0.07 dB away from the capacity of the channel. Furthermore, we compare simulated performance of the optimized irregular LDPC codes and turbo codes on a land mobile channel, and the results indicate that at a block size of 3072, irregular LDPC codes can outperform turbo codes over a wide range of mobile speeds

    ABSTRACT: We design low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes for bandwidth efficient modulation using a multilevel coding (MLC) technique. We develop a method to analyze the asymptotic performance of the LDPC codes using message-passing decoding at each level of the MLC scheme as the codeword length goes to infinity. Simulation of very large block size LDPC codes verifies the accuracy of the analytical results. We jointly optimize the code rates and code parameters of the LDPC codes at each level of the MLC scheme, and the asymptotic performance of the optimized irregular LDPC codes is very close to the channel capacity of the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel

    ABSTRACT: We design multilevel coding (MLC) schemes with low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes as component codes at each level. We develop a method to analyze the performance of an LDPC code at any level as the codeword length goes to infinity, even if the equivalent binary-input component channels are not symmetric. By joint optimization of code rates and degree distributions, the optimized irregular LDPC codes at each level are capable of achieving reliable transmission at signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) very close to the capacity of the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel as the codeword length tends to infinity. Simulation results show that the optimized LDPC codes also perform very well at moderate codeword lengths
