In this paper Low-Density Parity-Check (LDPC) codes are designed for burst erasure channels. Firstly, lower bounds for the maximum length erasure burst that can always be corrected with message-passing decoding are derived as a function of the parity-check matrix properties. The authors then show how parity-check matrices for burst erasure correcting LDPC codes can be constructed using superposition, where the burst erasure correcting performance of the resulting codes is derived as a property of the stopping set size of the base matrices and the choice of permutation matrices for the superposition.
