The LT Code equations describe the process of encoding input symbols into an error correcting code that requires no feedback from the receiver. The mathematical process involved the development of LT Codes is important. This thesis address the issue of improving the understanding of the LT Code equations presented in the original paper. This task is accomplished by inserting the mathematical details when possible, providing graphical results to the equations, and comparing the equations results against random computer generated simulations results. This thesis will improve the understanding of how LT Codes equations related to actual results.
