Abstract

In this paper, canonical convolutional encoders are studied for unequal error protection (UEP) from an algebraic theoretical viewpoint. We show that for any convolutional code there exists at least a canonical generator matrix which has the greatest separation vector, and hence the optimal UEP capability, among all canonical ones. A procedure for obtaining such desirable generator matrices is also proposed.
