    Abstract

    In this paper, an automatic procedure is developed to construct the optimal soft-decision quantizer and branch metric, based on the cutoff rate criterion, for the Viterbi decoder over any memoryless channel. As only samples of the received symbols are required, this procedure finds applications in many practical channels.
