Title: Principles and Design of Iterative Coding Systems

Speaker: Thomas Richardson, Flarion Technologies

Date: May 1, 2003, 4:30-5:30

Location: Princeton University, Friend 006


Iterative techniques are finding wide ranging application in signal processing. Techniques and ideas which underlie iterative systems emphasize certain features of information and communication theory. In this talk I will discuss some some aspects of iterative coding from both a theoretical and practical perspective in the context of designing such systems. The talk will focus on LDPC codes and Turbo codes, but I will also present a real-world design of a turbo-equalizer for a non-coherent wireless channel.
