A Piecewise Stationary Memoryless Channel (PSMC) is an abruptly changing channel which can be used to describe any system that experiences sudden, and persistent, burst of interference or degradation, or military communication channel in the presence of jaming.

The aim of this project is to study and understand constructions of LT codes for PSMCs over the Galois Field GF(q) and to design LT codes for such contructions using Gallager's majority decoding algorithms.
