Shannon Capacity and Spatially-Coupled Superposition Codes

Abstract: Since Shannon’s celebrated 1968 article, the quest for a capacity achieving error correction scheme has guided a large part of coding theory. Recently, it has been shown that a new strategy, Spatially-Coupled Superposition Coding, is capacity acheiving on any memory-less channel while admitting a polynomial iterative decoding. We shall describe this approach, and underline the analogies and difference with low density parity check codes and compressed sensing.
