The binary symmetric channel, where each bit is independently received in error with probability p, and the binary erasure channel, where each bit is erased with probability p, enjoy a long and rich history. Shannon developed the fundamental results on the capacity of such channels in the 1940's, and in recent years, through the development and analysis of Low-Density Parity-Check (LDPC) codes and related families of codes, the authors understand how to achieve near-capacity performance for such channels extremely efficiently.
