Channel polarization is a method for constructing capacity-achieving codes binary-input discrete memoryless channels with certain symmetries. The encoding and decoding complexity of the codes constructed by this method is O(Nlog N) in the code block length N and the probability of decoding error exponentially in the square-root of N. This talk will present the main ideas of channel polarization and indicate some of the broader coding scenarios where it may be applied to achieve the Shannon limit.
