Abstract:

Linear residue codes are useful in a number of applications due to their ease of implementation. For error control in data transmission they do not require special equipment and encoding and decoding operations can easily be carried out in digital computers. They are also useful for checking arithmetic operations in a computer. An iterative procedure is used to construct linear residue codes for the correction and detection of multiple random errors. This procedure and number -theoretic concepts are used to develop a theory for a class of multiple error correcting codes which have the property that the number of code words is a prime number. Applications to the practical coding problem are also discussed and examples given. Author
