Finding distance profiles of unequal error protection block codes

Martin Bossert, Vladimir Sidorenko, Victor Zyablov

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider distance profiles of arbitrary block codes (over arbitrary alphabets) with unequal error correcting capabilities. We show that for group codes (and hence for codes linear over fields) these distance profiles can be obtained using the well known MaxLog a posteriori probability decoding algorithm.
