Abstract:We discuss a s y m b o l b y symbol APP decoding algorithm that only uses forward recursions. Originally, this algorithm was described for o p t i m u m soft-output detection for channels w i t h IS1 and is called t h e o p t i m u m soft-output algorithm (OSA) [l]. We have proven the convergence of the OSA and show t h a t it is a generalization of the Viterbi algorithm.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
