title = "Code optimisation for finite error rate",

abstract = "We present a new construction based on Blokh and Zyablov's generalised concatenated codes for codes and coded modulation schemes with coding gain optimised for a given decoded word error rate, rather than for asymptotic coding gain. It is shown that this may be achieved by a geometric structure for the codes in which not all neighbouring codewords are at equal distances, which implies also that the minimum distance of the code is no longer maximised. The technique may be applied to coded modulation schemes where the 'inner code' is a multilevel signalling constellation, or to concatenated binary codes or codes over GF(q). The outer code may be a block or a trellis code. The technique is illustrated with reference to a block coded modulation scheme, block coded 8-PSK.",
