### Abstract

An attempt was made to study the asymptotic behavior of two quantities: the distribution of stopping sets, and the stopping number s^{z.ast;}-the size of the smallest nonempty stopping set in a code and use it to bound the error probability of LDPC codes with large blocklength. An expression for the normalized average stopping set distribution of regular and irregular LDPC codes was derived and used to obtain a critical fraction of the block length above which codes have exponentially many stopping sets of that size.
