Polarization of Quasi-Static Fading Channels Conference Paper uri icon


  • This work investigates polar coding for block-fading channels. We show that polarization does occur at infinity for three types of channel multiplexers. Nevertheless, the polarization process is not unique, as it is shaped by the choice of the multiplexer. The fading-plane approach is used to study the outage behavior of polar coding at a fixed transmission rate. Two types of multiplexers are shown to provide full diversity at finite and infinite code length. © 2013 IEEE.
