Improved Luby transform codes in low overhead regions for binary erasure channels
2014 (English)In: Transaction on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies, ISSN 2161-3915Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We study improved degree distribution for Luby transform (LT) codes, which exhibits improved bit error rates particularly in low overhead regions. We construct the degree distribution by modifying robust soliton distribution. The performance of our proposed LT codes is evaluated and compared with the conventional LT codes via And-Or tree analysis. Then we propose a transmission scheme based on our proposed degree distribution to improve the frame error rate in full recovery regions. Furthermore, the improved degree distribution is applied to distributed multi-source relay networks and unequal error protection. It is shown that our schemes achieve better performance and reduced complexity especially in low overhead regions, compared with conventional schemes.
