This paper presents a reduced-complexity approximate density evolution (DE) scheme for low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes in channels with memory in the form of a hidden Markov chain. This approximation is used to design degree sequences representing some of the best known LDPC code ensembles for the Gilbert-Elliott channel, and example optimizations are also given for other Markov channels. The problem of approximating the channel estimation is addressed by obtaining a specially constructed message-passing schedule in which the channel messages all approach their stable densities. It is shown that this new schedule is much easier to approximate than the standard schedule, but has the same ultimate performance in the limits of long block length and many decoding iterations. This result is extended to show that all message-passing schedules that satisfy mild conditions will have the same threshold under density evolution
