Full-diversity product codes for block erasure and block fading channels Conference Paper uri icon


  • We show how to build full-diversity product codes under both iterative encoding and decoding over non-ergodic channels, in presence of block erasure and block fading. The concept of a rootcheck or a root subcode is introduced by generalizing the same principle recently invented for low-density parity-check codes. We also describe some channel related graphical properties of the new family of product codes, a family referred to as root product codes. 2008 IEEE.
