I am Harish Vangala, a research scholar working on polar codes in coding theory at Dept. of Electrical and Computer Systems Eng., Monash University, Australia. My beloved supervisors are Prof. Emanuele Viterbo and Dr. Yi Hong
After the past few years of working with polar codes, we wanted to give away
some useful resources for the research community. Feel free to download and
use them as you wish. This site upgrades our older site at:
To help the beginners, we have also made a short series of videos on youtube. Indeed, there are many such already from eminent people in the field. Yet, we believe that our ~4 videos will serve the purpose of quickly introducing polar codes to beginners, without going any deeper into the theory of polarization or information theory.
Of course, we would be glad to hear your acknowledgements, suggestions and bug-reports. Feel free to drop by: Contact Us
