This Letter explores the adaptive hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) using rate-compatible polar codes constructed with a common information set. The rate adaptation problem is formulated using Markov decision process and solved by a dynamic programming framework in a low-complexity way. Simulation verifies the throughput efficiency of the proposed adaptive HARQ.
