Abstract:A Markovian technique is described to calculate the exact performance of the Viterbi algorithm used as either a channel decoder or a source encoder for a convolutional code. The probability of information bit error and the expected Hamming distortion are computed for codes of various rates and constraint lengths. The concept of tie-breaking rules is introduced and its influence on decoder performance is examined. Computer simulation is used to verify the accuracy of the results. Finally, we discuss the issue of when a coded system outperforms an uncoded system in light of the new results
