On the Nested Family of LDPC Codes Based on Golomb Rulers
In this paper we present a new ensemble of Low- Density Parity-Check codes (LDPC Codes) based on modular Golomb rulers and permutation matrices. We suggest a designing rule for these codes that allows obtaining a nested family of LDPC codes with wide range of rates from one matrix of lowest rate code. Moreover, the regular way that we apply to construct our codes allows describing parity-check matrices with minimal number of parameters. The simulation results in the case of transmission via AWGN channel with QAM-4 modulation are presented.
