AbstractLow-Density Parity-Check (LDPC) codes are powerful codes capable of nearly achieving the Shannon channel capacity. This paper presents a tutorial introduction to LDPC codes, with a detailed description of the decoding algorithm. The algorithm propagates information about bit and check probabilities through a tree obtained from the Tanner graph for the code. This paper may be useful as a supplement in a course on error-control coding or digital communication.
