Efficient Error-Correcting Codes in the Short Blocklength Regime. (arXiv:1812.08562v1 [cs.IT])

The design of block codes for short information blocks (e.g., a thousand or less information bits) is an open research problem that is gaining relevance thanks to emerging applications in wireless communication networks. In this paper, we review some of the most promising code constructions targeting the short block regime, and we compare them with both finite-length performance bounds and classical error-correction coding schemes. The work addresses the use of both binary and high-order modulations over the additive white Gaussian noise channel. We will illustrate how to effectively approach the theoretical bounds with various performance versus decoding complexity tradeoffs. 查看全文>>
