A method for constructing low-density convolutional (LDC) codes with the degree distribution optimized for block low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes is presented. If the degree distribution is irregular, the constructed LDC codes are also irregular. In this letter we give the encoding and decoding method for LDC codes, and study how to avoid the short cycles of LDC codes. Some simulation results are also presented.
