A list Viterbi algorithm (LVA) finds the n best paths in a trellis. We propose a new implementation of the tree-trellis LVA. Instead of storing all paths in a single sorted list, we show that it is more efficient to use several lists, where all paths of the same list have the same metric. For an integer metric, both the time and space complexity of our implementation are linear in n. Experimental results show that our implementation is much faster than all previous LVAs. This allows us to consider a large number of paths in acceptable time, which significantly improves the performance of a popular progressive source-channel coding system that protects embedded data with a concatenation of an outer error detecting code and an inner error correcting convolutional code.
