Abstract: In many applications, an uncompressed source stream is systematically encoded by a channel code (which ignores the source redundancy) for transmission over a discrete memoryless channel. The decoder knows the channel and the code but does not know the source statistics. This paper proposes several universal channel decoders that take advantage of the source redundancy without requiring prior knowledge of the source statistics.
