Abstract
Modern digital communication systems can benefit from softdecision algorithms in receiver implementations. Such algorithms require reliability information about every data bit which is typically given in terms of LogLikelihood Ratios (LLRs) or short LValues. Several efficient receiver implementations based on LValues have already been proposed in the literature. Many of them exploit the famous BoxPlus operation. Its inverse has also been introduced in terms of the BoxMinus operation. In this letter, at first the specific characteristics of both operations, the BoxPlus as well as the BoxMinus operation, will briefly be reviewed. Secondly, as a novelty we will define two more operators, the BoxMultiply and the BoxDivide operation. An illustrative example will demonstrate the necessity for these two new operators. Finally, we will propose a practical solution for eliminating a critical side constraint of the BoxMinus operation which was known to be a limiting factor so far.
