Polar codes are the first class of constructive channel codes achieving the symmetric capacity of the binary-input discrete memoryless channels. But the corresponding code length is limited to the power of two. In this paper, we establish a systematic framework to design the rate-compatible punctured polar (RCPP) codes with arbitrary code length. A new theoretic tool, called polar spectra, is proposed to count the number of paths on the code tree with the same number of zeros or onesarXiv:1612.01352v2 fatcat:cfgfhlz46jhk3g3dlsbafa55re
