For BPSK, one can theoretically move back and forth between log-likelihood ratio and probabilities by using following expressions

P(0) = 1/(1+exp(L)),P(1)=exp(L)/(1+exp(L)).

But in simulations if 'L' gets really large the above expression for P(1) returns NaN. Theory suggests that if L>>1, then P(1)-->1. I tried different values of L for which P(1) changes and found out that any value of L<-10 gives P(0)=1 and L>10 gives P(1)=1. I wrote the following two codes to compute P(0) and P(1)

%-----------------------Code-A--------------------------------- [row col] = size(LLR) for i=1:row for j=1:col

if LLR(i,j)==+inf Probability(i,j) = 1; else Probability(i,j) = exp(LLR(i,j))/(1+exp(LLR(i,j))); end

end end %-----------------------Code-B--------------------------------- for i=1:row for j=1:col

if LLR(i,j)>10 Probability(i,j) = 1; end

if LLR(i,j)<-10 Probability(i,j) = -1; end

if (LLR(i,j)<10)&&(LLR(i,j)>-10) Probability(i,j) = exp(LLR(i,j))/(1+exp(LLR(i,j))); end

end end %--------------------------------------------------------------

for the same LLR matrix, with Code-A I get all real values in Probability matrix while with Code-B results in complex values.

I ll appreciate any suggestions in this regard.
