Covering the full range of channel codes from the most conventionalthrough to the most advanced, the second edition of TurboCoding, Turbo Equalisation and Space-Time Coding is aself-contained reference on channel coding for wireless channels.The book commences with a historical perspective on the topic,which leads to two basic component codes, convolutional and blockcodes. It then moves on to turbo codes which exploit iterativedecoding by using algorithms, such as the Maximum-A-Posteriori(MAP), Log-MAP and Soft Output Viterbi Algorithm (SOVA), comparingtheir performance. It also compares Trellis Coded Modulation (TCM),Turbo Trellis Coded Modulation (TTCM), Bit-Interleaved CodedModulation (BICM) and Iterative BICM (BICM-ID) under variouschannel conditions.
The horizon of the content is then extended to incorporatetopics which have found their way into diverse standard systems.These include space-time block and trellis codes, as well as otherMultiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) schemes andnear-instantaneously Adaptive Quadrature Amplitude Modulation(AQAM). The book also elaborates on turbo equalisation by providinga detailed portrayal of recent advances in partial responsemodulation schemes using diverse channel codes.
A radically new aspect for this second edition is the discussionof multi-level coding and sphere-packing schemes, ExtrinsicInformation Transfer (EXIT) charts, as well as an introduction tothe family of Generalized Low Density Parity Check codes.
This new edition includes recent advances in near-capacityturbo-transceivers as well as new sections on multi-level codingschemes and of Generalized Low Density Parity Check codes
