Polar coding is a code construction method that can be used to construct capacity-achieving codes for binaryinput channels with certain symmetries. Polar coding may be considered as a generalization of Reed-Muller (RM) coding. Here, we demonstrate the performance advantages of polar codes over RM codes under belief-propagation decoding.
