  • 454 Accesses

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC,volume 986)


This article is focused on the optimisation of LDPC codes in order to achieve high efficiency in encoding and decoding messages that also respect Transmission Channel Properties: this issue is related to the frequency band of the assumed transmission, and on models of - faults that affect individual symbols - or groups of symbols, according to their Transmission Environment Properties.
