The goals of this article are twofold: (1) to provide a brief tutorial of the application of low-density parity check (LDPC) codes for partial response (PR) channels under the framework of turbo equalization and (2) to highlight the use of structured LDPC codes in PR systems. We begin by introducing LDPC codes, their graph representations and associated sum-product decoding algorithm, followed by describing the general framework of iterative equalization and decoding approach to combat ISI. We then present explicit constructions of structured LDPC codes, which facilitate efficient implementation of encoding and decoding and show simulation results.
