The linear programming (LP) decoding of Low-Density Parity-Check (LDPC) codes is widely concerned for its maximum likelihood (ML) features. It is that the ML decoding rule for LDPC codes can be relaxed to LP optimization problem. Therefore, this paper focus on an efficient algorithm called infeasible primal-dual interior-point (IPDIP) to solve the LP problem. In each iteration, the IPDIP algorithm obtains the predictor and corrector steps by solving the Karush-Kuhn-Tucker (KKT) equation twice. The predictor term is used to responsible for optimal solution and the corrector term keeps the current iteration away from the boundary of the feasible region. Furthermore, a modification of the centering parameter is developed to accelerate the convergence speed for the IPDIP algorithm. Simulation results of LP decoding demonstrate that the proposed IPDIP algorithm achieves beautiful bit error rate (BER) performance and good global convergence properties with less iteration number and time than other algorithms which only solve the KKT equation once by Newton method or use the not modified centering parameter.
