Consider the (7,5) RS code Binary image expansion of the parity check matrix of RS(7, 5) over GF(23)

12
**Recent Iterative Techniques**

13
**Recent Iterative Techniques (cont’d)**

Stochastic shifting based iterative decoding (Jing & Narayanan, to appear 2004) Due to the irregularity in the H matrix, iterative decoding favors some bits Taking advantage of the cyclic structure of RS codes Shift by 2 Stochastic shift prevent iterative procedure from getting stuck Best result: RS(63,55) about 0.5dB gain from HDD However, for long codes, this algorithm still doesnt provide good improvement

14
**Remarks on Existing Techniques**

Most SIHO algorithms are either too complex to implement or having only marginal gain Moreover, SIHO decoders cannot generate soft output directly Trellis-based decoders have exponentially increasing complexity Iterative decoding algorithms do not work for long codes, since the parity check matrices of RS codes are not sparse Most SIHO algorithms are either too complex to implement or have only marginal gain. Moreover, SIHO decoders cannot generate soft output efficiently. Trellis-based ML decoder has exponentially increasing complexity. Iterative decoding algorithms do not work for long codes. Since the parity check matrices of RS codes are not sparse. There’s no known technique to generate a sparse parity check matrix for long RS codes. “Soft decoding of large RS codes as employed in many standard transmission systems, e.g., RS(255,239), with affordable complexity remains an open problem” (Ungerboeck, ISTC2003)

15
Questions Q: Why doesn’t iterative decoding work for codes with non-sparse parity check matrices? Q: Can we get some idea from the failure of iterative decoder? Most SIHO algorithms are either too complex to implement or have only marginal gain. Moreover, SIHO decoders cannot generate soft output efficiently. Trellis-based ML decoder has exponentially increasing complexity. Iterative decoding algorithms do not work for long codes. Since the parity check matrices of RS codes are not sparse. There’s no known technique to generate a sparse parity check matrix for long RS codes.

**How does standard message passing algorithm work?**

erased bits bit nodes …………. ……….. ? ……………. check nodes If two or more of the incoming messages are erasures the check is erased Otherwise, check to bit message is the value of the bit that will satisfy the check

17
**How does standard message passing algorithm work?**

bit nodes …………. ……….. ……………. check nodes Small values of vj can be thought of as erasures and hence more than two edges with small vj’s saturate the check

18
**A Few Unreliable Bits “Saturate” the Non-sparse Parity Check Matrix**

Consider RS(7, 5) over GF(23) Binary image expansion of the parity check matrix of RS(7, 5) over GF(23) Unfortunately, RS codes usually possess no sparse parity check matrices as the codeword length increases. There are no known operation to make the whole parity check matrix sparse. Thus, as the codeword length goes to be large, Consequently, iterative decoding is stuck at some “pseudo-codes” due to only a few unreliable bits. Iterative decoding is stuck due to only a few unreliable bits “saturating” the whole non-sparse parity check matrix

19
**Sparse Parity Check Matrices for RS Codes**

Can we find an equivalent binary parity check matrix that is sparse? For RS codes, this is not possible! The H matrix is the G matrix of the dual code The dual of an RS code is also an MDS Code Every row has weight at least (N-K)!

20
**Iterative Decoding Based on Adaptive Parity Check Matrix**

Idea: reduce the sub-matrix corresponding to the unreliable positions to a sparse nature. For example, consider (7,4) Hamming code: transmitted codeword received vector parity check matrix Need animation of stopping pattern of iterative decoding. After the adaptive update, iterative decoding can proceed.

**More Details about the Matrix Adaptive Scheme**

Consider the previous example: (7,4)Hamming code transmitted codeword received vector parity check matrix We can guaranteed reduce some (n-k)m columns to degree 1 We attempt to chose these to be the least reliable independent bits Least Reliable Basis

23
**Interpretation as an Optimization Procedure**

Standard iterative decoding procedure is interpreted as gradient descent optimization (Lucas et al. 1998). Proposed algorithm is a generalization, two-stage optimization procedure: Bit reliabilities updating stage (gradient descent) Iterative decoding is applied to generate extrinsic information Extrinsic information is scaled by a damping coefficient and fed to update the bit-level reliabilities Parity check matrix update (change direction) All bit-level reliabilities are sorted by their absolute values Systemize the sub-matrix corresponding to LRB in the parity check matrix The damping coefficient serves to control the convergent dynamics.

**Variation1: Symbol-level Adaptive Scheme**

Systemizing the sub-matrix involves undesirable Gaussian elimination. This problem can be detoured via utilizing the structure of RS codes. We implement Symbol-level adaptive scheme. least reliable symbols This step can be efficiently realized using Forney’s algorithm (Forney 1965) binary mapping

28
**Variation2: Degree-2 sub-graph in the unreliable part**

Reduce the “unreliable” sub-matrix to a sparse sub-graph rather than an identity to improve the asymptotic performance. bit nodes …………. ……….. ……………. check nodes unreliable bits weakly connected

29
**Variation2: Degree-2 sub-graph in the unreliable part (cont’d)**

Q: How to adapt the parity check matrix?

30
**Variation3: Different grouping of unreliable bits (cont’d)**

Some bits at the boundary part may also have the wrong sign. Run the proposed algorithm several times, each time with an exchange of some “reliable” and “unreliable” bits at the boundary. Consider the received LLR of an RS(7,5) code: Group1 Group2 ……. A list of candidate codewords are generated using different groups. Pick up the most likely from the list.

31
**Variation4: Partial updating scheme (cont’d)**

The main complexity comes from updating the bits in the high density part, however, only few bits at the boundary part will be affected. In variable node updating stage: update only the “unreliable” bits in the sparse sub-matrix and a few “reliable” bits at the boundary part. In check node updating stage: make an approximation of the check sum via taking advantage of the ordered reliabilities. Complexity in floating point operation part is reduced to be ascending reliability Maximum-likelihood SISO decoding and variations Trellis based decoding using the binary image expansions of RS codes over GF(2m) (Vardy & Be’ery 1991) Reduced complexity version (Ponnampalam & Vucetic 2002) Iterative SISO algorithms Sub-trellis structure self-concatenation and iterative decoding of RS codes using their binary image (Ungerboeck 2003) Stochastic shifting based iterative decoding of RS codes using their binary image (Jing & Narayanan, submitted 2003) Iterative decoding via sparse factor graph representations of RS codes based on a fast Fourier transform (FFT) (Yedidia, MERL report 2003)

32
Applications Q: How do the proposed algorithm and its variations perform? Simulation results: Proposed algorithm and variations over AWGN channel Performance over symbol level fully interleaved slow fading channel RS coded turbo equalization (TE) system over EPR4 channel RS coded modulation over fast fading channel Simulation setups: A “genie aided” HDD is assumed for AWGN and fading channel. In the TE system, all coded bits are interleaved at random. A “genie aided” stopping rule is applied. The performance of the proposed algorithm and its variations are verified via computer simulation. Proposed algorithm is implemented in conjunction with a “genie aided” hard decision decoding over AWGN and fading channels to speed up simulation. In the turbo equalization system, no hard decision is assumed, however, when all bits converges to the correct value, iteration stops.

Remarks Proposed scheme performs near ML for medium length codes. Symbol-level adaptive updating scheme provides non-trivial gain. Partial updating incurs little penalty with great reduction in complexity. For long codes, proposed scheme is still away from ML decoding. Q: How does it work over other channels? Generic algorithm provides near Symbol level adaptive updating scheme provides comparable performance with Chase and KV algorithms. Partial updating scheme incurs little penalty while greatly reduces the complexity. For long codes, e.g., RS(255,239), the proposed algorithms, though provides significant gain over hard decision decoding, are still quite away ML performance.

Remarks More noticeable gain is observed for fading channels, especially for symbol-level adaptive scheme. In RS coded modulation scheme, utilizing bit-level soft information seems provide more gain. The proposed TE scheme can combat ISI and performs almost identically as the performance over AWGN channels. The proposed algorithm has a potential “error floor” problem. However, simulation down to even lower FER is impossible. Asymptotic performance analysis is still under investigation. For EPR4 channels, the proposed turbo equalization scheme can mitigate the effect ISI and performs almost identically as the performance over AWGN channels, while other SIHO algorithms are not efficient to generate soft information. For symbol-level fully interleaved slow fading channels, more noticeable gain is observed for RS codes of practical length, especially for symbol-level adaptive scheme. For RS coded modulation over fast Rayleigh fading channels, proposed algorithm also outperforms hard decision decoding via more efficiently utilizing bit level soft information as long as Gray mapping is applied. For long codes, an “error floor” phenomenon of the proposed algorithm is observed. Simulation down to even lower FER is impossible. Asymptotic performance analysis is under investigation.
