When is hard decision decoding enough?

Date of Original Version



Many algorithms for soft and near-soft decision decoding of block codes start by implementing hard decision decoding. In several instances it has been noted that simple tests of the hard decision result may allow the algorithm to terminate at this point. This paper explores this notion in detail.
