The method includes determining degrees for each of a plurality of column groups of an information part; determining a shortening order based on the degrees; generating a parity check matrix based on the shortening order; and performing coding using the parity check matrix. | 05-01-2014 |

20140143640 | METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CHANNEL ENCODING AND DECODING IN ACOMMUNICATION SYSTEM USING A LOW-DENSITY PARITY CHECK CODE - A method is provided for channel encoding in a communication system using a Low-Density Parity Check (LDPC) code. The method includes grouping information bits into a plurality of groups; determining an order of the plurality of groups to be shortened, based on whether a specific region in a frame is to be LDPC-encoded, where the specific region has a different ratio of a number of bits to be shortened to a number of bits to be punctured; determining a length of an information word to be obtained by shortening the plurality of groups; shortening the plurality of groups on a group basis in the determined order based on the determined length of the information word; and LDPC-encoding a shortened information word. | 05-22-2014 |

20140185563 | METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR TRANSMITTING/RECEIVING CONTROL INFORMATION IN A WIRELESS COMMUNICATION SYSTEM - A method and apparatus for receiving control information in a digital broadcasting/communication system. The method includes receiving signaling information having a fixed number of bits in a coded block of a received frame; and decoding signaling information having a variable number of bits in at least one coded block of the received frame, using the signaling information having the fixed number of bits. The signaling information having the fixed number of bits includes information about a number of Radio Frequency (RF) channels, and the signaling information having the variable number of bits includes information representing a frequency for each of the RF channels, respectively. | 07-03-2014 |

20140185706 | METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR TRANSMITTING AND RECEIVING DATA IN A COMMUNICATION SYSTEM - Methods and apparatus are provided for transmitting and receiving encoded data. A codeword is generated by encoding an information word. Some parity bits are punctured in the generated codeword. A frame including the punctured codeword is transmitted. Additional parity bits for decoding the information word are transmitted in one or more other frames. | 07-03-2014 |

20140258815 | APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR TRANSMITTING AND RECEIVING DATA IN COMMUNICATION/BROADCASTING SYSTEM - An apparatus and a method for performing shortening and puncturing in case of performing encoding and decoding using a parity test matrix in a communication/broadcasting system are provided. The method includes determining a number of zero-padding bits, determining a number N | 09-11-2014 |

20140307831 | APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR REDUCING PAPR OF PREAMBLE SIGNAL IN DIGITAL BROADCASTING SYSTEM - Methods and apparatuses are provided for reducing a Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR) in a digital broadcasting system. Reserved tones are determined in previously determined locations of sub-carriers that do not collide with a pilot signal of a preamble in a frame. A signal is transmitted through the reserved tones in a period for which the preamble is transmitted. If a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) size is 8K, locations of the reserved tones are determined in accordance with a specified chart. | 10-16-2014 |
