Wu, Lizhi (2003) Construction of low density parity check codes without short cycles. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
With the rapid expansion of communication networks, there has been an increasing demand for efficient and reliable digital data transmission and storage systems. Many efficient codes have been developed. The LDPC code is one of them. In this thesis, the sum-product algorithm is used in the decoding of LDPC codes. Some schemes for encoding LDPC codes have been studied. In particular, two methods of producing regular H matrices have been attempted that include short cycles of length four with code rates of 0.5, and we present three schemes of finding regular H matrices which do not include short cycles of length four with code rate being 0.5. The effect of short cycles in the bipartite graph of regular LDPC codes has been considered. The simulation results show that the BER performances of regular H matrices that do not include short cycles of length four based on BPSK or 8PSK on AWGN channel is better than those of regular H matrices that include short cycles of length four. In conclusion, in order to obtain good performance with LDPC code, one should design H matrix related to bipartite graph without short cycles.
