Communication over the binary erasure channel (BEC) using low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes and belief propagation (BP) decoding is considered. The average bit error probability of an irregular LDPC code ensemble after a fixed number of iterations converges to a limit, which is calculated via density evolution, as the blocklength n tends to infinity. The difference between the bit error probability with blocklength n and the large-blocklength limit behaves asymptotically like ¿/n, where the coefficient ¿ depends on the ensemble, the number of iterations and the erasure probability of the BEC. In, ¿ is calculated for regular ensembles. In this paper, ¿ for irregular expurgated ensembles is derived. It is demonstrated that convergence of numerical estimates of ¿ to the analytic result is significantly fast for irregular unexpurgated ensembles.
