Abstract:

The technique of sequential decoding described by Wozencraft makes possible the practical implementation of error-correcting codes having large constraint lengths. This paper describes another sequential decoding scheme, and presents theoretical results on the associated average number of decoding steps and probability of error. Simultaneous studies of this decoding scheme are currently being performed on a digital computer. A summary is given of the result obtained to date. Author
