Summary: 
A self-adaptive scaled min-sum algorithm for LDPC decoding based on the difference between the first two minima of the check node messages (Δmin) is proposed. Δmin is utilized for adjusting the scaling factor of the check node messages, and simulation results show that the proposed algorithm improves the error correcting performance compared to existing algorithms.
