Self-concatenated code design and its application in power-efficient cooperative communications

Butt, Muhammad Fasih, Ng, Soon and Hanzo, Lajos (2012) Self-concatenated code design and its application in power-efficient cooperative communications IEEE Communications Surveys & Tutorials, 14, (3), pp. 858-883. (doi:10.1109/SURV.2011.081511.00104).

Record type: Article


In this tutorial, we have focused on the design of binary self-concatenated coding schemes with the help of EXtrinsic Information Transfer (EXIT) charts and Union bound analysis. The design methodology of future iteratively decoded self-concatenated aided cooperative communication schemes is presented. In doing so, we will identify the most important milestones in the area of channel coding, concatenated coding schemes and cooperative communication systems till date and suggest future research directions.
