Non-binary LDPC codes associated to high order modulations

Abstract : This thesis is devoted to the analysis of the association of non-binary LDPC codes (NB-LDPC) with high-order modulations. This association aims to improve the spectral efficiency of future wireless communication systems. Our approach tries to take maximum advantage of the straight association between NB-LDPC codes over a Galois Field with modulation constellations of the same cardinality. We first investigate the optimization of the signal space diversity technique obtained with the Rayleigh channel (with and without erasure) thanks to the rotation of the constellation. To optimize the rotation angle, the mutual information analysis is performed for both coded modulation (CM) and bit-interleaved coded modulation (BICM) schemes. The study shows the advantages of coded modulations over the state-of-the-art BCIM modulations. Using Monte Carlo simulation, we show that the theoretical gains translate into actual gains in practical systems. In the second part of the thesis, we propose to perform a joint optimization of constellation labeling and parity-check coefficient choice, based on the Euclidian distance instead of the Hamming distance. An optimization method is proposed. Using the optimized matrices, a gain of 0.2 dB in performance is obtained with no additional complexity.
