LDPC-triangle codes close to ideal codes, even at small code rates

Tuesday 18 March 2008.
New results show that LDPC-triangle codes (and to a lesser extent LDPC-staircase) are extremely close to ideal codes, even in case of small code rates. The decoding time remains good and the flexibility extremely high. A great achievement likely to change the way one considers these codes!
