Amplitude Distribution
By Constant Composition Distribution Matching (CCDM), $k_\text{c}$ uniformly distributed data bits are transformed into $n_\text{c}$ shaped amplitudes: $$ D^{k_\text{c}}\text{---}\boxed{\text{CCDM}}\text{---}A^{n_\text{c}} $$
  • Data bits $D_i$ iid Bernoulli(1/2).
  • The $A_i$ have MB distribution on amplitude set $\{1,3,\dotsc,2^m-1\}$: $$ P_A(a)=\frac{e^{-\nu a^2}}{\sum_{\tilde{a}\in\mathcal{A}}e^{-\nu \tilde{a}^2}} $$
  • For large enough $n_\text{c}$, the CCDM rate is equal to the entropy of $A$, i.e., $k_\text{c}/n_\text{c}=H(A)$.
  • CCDM is invertible: receiver recovers $D^{k_\text{c}}$ from $A^{n_\text{c}}$ with zero error.
