PolarCode 1.1.0

PolarCode provides functions for polar code training, encoding and decoding. Like turbo and LDPC codes, polar codes facilitate near-capacity operation. However, unlike turbo and LDPC codes, polar codes do not require an iterative decoder. You can find out more about polar codes in Erdal Arikan’s paper. Tested with IT++ 4.0.2 and g++ 4.2.1.
