Extended Low-density Parity-check Codes for Cooperative Diversity

Hussain Ali, Maan Kousa

Abstract

Cooperative diversity or user cooperation achieves the diversity gain without adding physical antennas to the users. The users work in cooperative fashion using their single antennas to create a virtual multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antenna system. The diversity gain achieved by cooperative diversity can be further improved using error correction codes. Low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes are linear block codes with good error correction capabilities. We present a novel approach using extended LDPC codes to increase the diversity gain in cooperative diversity.
