Yash Kanoria Andrea Montanari, "On the deletion channel with small deletion probability".  Jun 2010

The deletion channel is the simplest point-to-point communication 

Lars Eirik Danielsen, "On Connections Between Graphs, Codes, Quantum States, and Boolean Functions".  May 2008


We study objects that can be represented as graphs, error-correcting codes, quantum states, or Boolean functions. It is known that self-dual additive codes, which can also be ...

Aliazam Abbasfar Dariush Divsalar Kung Yao, "Accumulate-Repeat-Accumulate Codes".  Apr 2007

In this paper, we propose an innovative channel coding scheme called accumulate-repeat-accumulate (ARA) codes. This class of codes can be viewed as serial turbo-like codes or as a subclass of ...
