Polar coding is a code construction method that can achieve the capacity of symmetric binary-input discrete memoryless channels (B-DMC). Polar codes in standard form are non-systematic polar codes (NSPCs). The codes are susceptible to error propagation under successive cancellation (SC) decoding while systematic polar codes (SPCs) are more robust against error propagation. SPCs may be considered as a generalization of NSPCs. Here,we demonstrate the performance advantages of SPCs over NSPCs under SC decoding.
