Nested low-density lattice codes based on non-binary LDPC codes
MetadataShow full item record
A family of low-density lattice codes (LDLC) is studied based on Construction-A for lattices. The family of Construction-A codes is already known to contain a large capacity-achieving subset. Parallels are drawn between coset non-binary low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes and nested low-density Construction-A lattices codes. Most of the related research in LDPC domain assumes optimal power allocation to encoded codeword. The source coding problem of mapping message to power optimal codeword for any LDPC code is in general, NP-hard. In this thesis, we present a novel method for encoding and decoding lattice based on non-binary LDPC codes using message-passing algorithms.
