We construct codes that can closely approach (and possibly ultimately achieve) the i.i.d. capacity of an intersymbol interference (ISI) channel with inputs confined to binary values. We use the low-density-parity-check (LDPC) degree sequences optimization method proposed by Richardson, Shokrollahi and Urbanke (see IEEE Trans. Inform. Theory, vol.47, p.619-37, February 2001) and appropriately modify it for ISI channels.
