Abstract

This paper addresses the performance of polar codes in the context of the quantum key distribution (QKD) protocol. It introduces the notion of an interactive polar decoder and studies its performance. The results demonstrate that the interactive decoder is efficient in the right environment and can be used to construct good classical polar codes efficiently
