Success!

- Works poor
- Due to the randomness in the encoding process,
- Ripple would disappear at some point, and the whole decoding process failed.

Maximum failure probability of the decoder

Degree distribution of Ideal Soliton Distribution

[6] M. Luby, “LT codes”, Proc. Annu. Symp. Found. Comput. Sci. (Vancouver, Canada), 2002, pp. 271-282.

- Optimal degree distribution is proposed[12]
- When k is large, the coefficient matrix of optimal degree distribution is too sick.
- No solution.

- Suboptimal degree distribution:

[12] Zhu H P, Zhang G X, Xie Z D, "Suboptimal degree distribution of LT codes". Journal of Applied Sciences-Electronics and Information Engineering. Jan 2009, Vol. 27, No. 1, pp. 6-11.

R is initial ripple size

E is the expected number of encoded symbols required to recovery the input symbols.

- Based on modified power-law distribution
- Presenting that scale-free property have a higher chance to be decoded correctly.

- A large number of nodes with low degree
- A little number of nodes with high degree

P1: the fraction of encoded symbols with degree-1

r : the characteristic exponent

A: the normalizing coefficient to ensure

- The encoding/decoding efficiency is evaluated by the average degree of encoded symbols.
- Less average degree
- Fewer times of XOR operations

- Encoded symbol should be released until the decoding process finished
- Degree release probability is very important

- Less number of encoded symbols required to recovery the input symbols means less cost of transmitting the original data information.
- The overhead should be considered

- : degree distribution : average degree

- Can be calculated based on the summation formula of harmonic progression
- r : Euler's constant which is similar to 0.58
- Average degree of ideal soliton degree distribution is

- The complexity of its average degree is

- The complexity of its average degree is

- Based on the properties of Scale-free
- The average degree of Scale-free Luby Distribution will be small
- (r-1) is the sum of a p-progression
- It is obvious that the average degree of SF-LT codes is smaller
- Encoding/decoding complexity of SF-LT code is much lower than the others

[6] M. Luby, “LT codes”, Proc. Annu. Symp. Found. Comput. Sci. (Vancouver, Canada), 2002, pp. 271-282.

- [6]
- In general, r(L) should be larger than 1
- At least 1 encoded symbol is released when an input symbol is processed.

Degree release probabilityRobust soliton distribution

- Using limit theory, it can be expressed as , where
- Suppose E encoded symbols is sufficient to recovery the k original input symbols.
- At each decoding step, larger than 1 encoded symbol is released.

- Initial ripple size must be bigger than Robust Soliton Distribution’s
- k·P1is bigger than 1
- The complexity is

- Suboptimal degree distribution's degree release probability is bigger than the others

- A decreasing ripple size provides a better trade-off between robustness and the overhead factor [14]
- The theoretical evolution of the ripple size :
- Assuming that at each decoding iteration, the input symbols can be added in to the ripple set without repetition

: the number of degree-i input symbols left

L : the size of unprocessed input symbols

- Robust LT codes, suboptimal LT code and SF-LT code are capable to recovery the input symbols efficiently.
- From the overhead factor, SF-LT codes and suboptimal LT codes need much less number of encoded symbols to recovery given number of input symbols.
- The average degree of SF-LT code is smaller than the others.
- SF-LT code performs much better probability of successful decoding and enhanced encoding/decoding complexity
