Cascading parity-check error-correcting codes

Ido Kanter, David Saad

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A method for improving the performance of sparse-matrix based parity check codes is proposed, based on insight gained from methods of statistical physics. The advantages of this approach are demonstrated on an existing encoding/decoding paradigm suggested by Sourlas. We also discuss the application of the same method to more advanced codes of a similar type.
