An adaptive modulation (AM) algorithm is proposed and the application of the adapting algorithm together with low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes in multicarrier systems is investigated. The AM algorithm is based on minimizing the average bit error rate (BER) of systems, the combination of AM algorithm and LDPC codes with different code rates (half and three-fourths) are studied. The proposed AM algorithm with that of Fischer et al is compared. Simulation results show that the performance of the proposed AM algorithm is better than that of the Fischer’s algorithm. The results also show that application of the proposed AM algorithm together with LDPC codes can greatly improve the performance of multicarrier systems. Results also show that the performance of the proposed algorithm is degraded with an increase in code rate when code length is the same.
