Research output: Patent


System and method for designing Slepian-Wolf codes by channel code partitioning. A generator matrix is partitioned to generate a plurality of sub-matrices corresponding respectively to a plurality of correlated data sources. The partitioning is performed in accordance with a rate allocation among the plurality of correlated data sources. A corresponding plurality of parity matrices are generated based respectively on the sub-matrices, where each parity matrix is useable to encode data from a respective one of the correlated data sources.
