Preface

Channel coding has long been recognized as an important feature for the transmission or the storage of digital information, to combat the unstructured noise incurred by small to nano-electronics. Data are always used in coded form for their transmission through wireless or wired channels, or for their storage on magnetic or optical recording devices, to ensure a desired level of reliability of the communication systems.

While its origin dates back to more than half a century, it was not until the 1990s and the introduction of the turbo principle in information theory that theoretical limits could be approached with practical designs. This discovery, based on the concept of iterative decoding with feedback of newly processed information, ...
