group-wise interleaving, by interleaving circuitry, the LDPC code word in units of bit groups of 360 bits to generate a group-wise interleaved LDPC code word;
wherein, in the group-wise interleaving, when an (i+1)-th bit group from a head of the generated LDPC code word is indicated by a bit group i, a sequence of bit groups 0 to 179 of the generated LDPC code word of 64800 bits is interleaved into a following sequence of bit groups
58, 70, 23, 32, 26, 63, 55, 48, 35, 41, 53, 20, 38, 51, 61, 65, 44, 29, 7, 2, 113, 68, 96, 104, 106, 89, 27, 0, 119, 21, 4, 49, 46, 100, 13, 36, 57, 98, 102, 9, 42, 39, 33, 62, 22, 95, 101, 15, 91, 25, 93, 132, 69, 87, 47, 59, 67, 124, 17, 11, 31, 43, 40, 37, 85, 50, 97, 140, 45, 92, 56, 30, 34, 60, 107, 24, 52, 94, 64, 5, 71, 90, 66, 103, 88, 86, 84, 19, 169, 159, 147, 126, 28, 130, 14, 162, 144, 166, 108, 153, 115, 135, 120, 122, 112, 139, 151, 156, 16, 172, 164, 123, 99, 54, 136, 81, 105, 128, 116, 150, 155, 76, 18, 142, 170, 175, 83, 146, 78, 109, 73, 131, 127, 82, 167, 77, 110, 79, 137, 152, 3, 173, 148, 72, 158, 117, 1, 6, 12, 8, 161, 74, 143, 133, 168, 171, 134, 163, 138, 121, 141, 160, 111, 10, 149, 80, 75, 165, 157, 174, 129, 145, 114, 125, 154, 118, 176, 177, 178, and 179;
