An Efficient Algorithm to Compute the Euclidean Distance Spectrum of a General Intersymbol Interference Channel and Its Applications Academic Article uri icon


  • We present an efficient algorithm to compute the distance spectrum of a general finite intersymbol interference (ISI) channel, whose complexity is lower than those of existing methods. Closed-form expressions are derived for both input-output Euclidean distance enumerators and asymptotic distance spectrum shapes for 2-tap and 3-tap ISI channels. Coded and/or precoded ISI channels are also discussed. 2004 IEEE.
