Preserving the Minimum Distance of Polar-Like Codes while Increasing the Information Length

Abstract : Reed Muller (RM) codes are known for their good minimum distance. One can use their structure to construct polar-like codes with good distance properties by choosing the information set as the rows of the polarization matrix with the highest Hamming weight, instead of the most reliable synthetic channels. However, the information length options of RM codes are quite limited due to their specific structure. In this work, we present sufficient conditions to increase the information length by at least one bit for some underlying RM codes and in order to obtain pre-transformed polar-like codes with the same minimum distance than lower rate codes. Moreover, our findings are combined with the method presented in [1] to further reduce the number of minimum weight codewords. Numerical results show that the designed codes perform close to the meta-converse bound at short blocklengths and better than the polarized adjusted convolutional polar codes with the same parameters.
