Density Evolution and Error Floor Analysis for Staircase and Braided Codes
Paper in proceedings, 2016

We analyze deterministically constructed (i.e., non-ensemble-based) codes in the waterfall and error floor region. The analysis directly applies to several FEC classes proposed for high-speed OTNs such as staircase and braided codes.
