• Improving the Left Degree Distribution of Fountain Codes in the Finite-Length Regime 

      Hayajneh, Khaled (2013-08-22)
      Fountain codes were introduced to provide higher reliability, lower complexities, and more scalability for networks such as the Internet. In this thesis, we study Luby- Transform (LT) codes which are the realization of ...
    • Rateless Coding for Single-Source Networks with Common Information 

      Modiri, Arghavan (2015-06-03)
      In this thesis, we consider the communication problem of a single source simultaneously transmitting to multiple receivers whose sets of requested messages overlap. For decades, one of the challenges in this broadcast ...
    • Soliton-Like LT Codes over GF(4) and GF(8) 

      Spencer, James (2016-03-30)
      The Luby Transform (LT) codes are the first practical realization of fountain codes. LT codes were designed for efficient use over erasure channels. However, the degree distributions designed for the Binary Erasure Channel ...
