On the distribution of the output error burst lengths for Viterbi decoding of convolutional codes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

The distribution of the output error burst lengths from a Viterbi decoder is of particular interest in connection with concatenated coding systems, where the inner code is convolutional. From the expurgated, random, and sphere-packing exponents for block codes an upper bound on this distribution for the ensemble of periodically time-varying convolutional codes is obtained. Finally, the distribution obtained from simulating time-invariant convolutional codes is presented
