Title: GENERALIZED POLAR CODE BASED ON POLARIZATION OF LINEAR BLOCK CODES AND CONVOLUTIONAL CODES
Abstract:
Aspects of the disclosure relate to a channel coding and decoding algorithm that provides for generalized polar codes, including the concatenation of a plurality of component codes via one-step polarization. In a further aspect, selection of suitable component codes in this scheme can result in a generalized polar code having a cyclic shift property, such that information can be implicitly communicated according to the magnitude of the cyclic shift. In yet another aspect, a decoding algorithm provides for reliable decoding of such generalized polar codes, including exploitation of time diversity in sequential transmissions. Other aspects, embodiments, and features are also claimed and described.
