Abstract:

Cyclic codes of known classes today are either for burst error correction only or for random error correction only. By careful observation, a typical communication channel is disturbed by both types of errors, burst errors and random errors, but not simultaneously. By definition, a communication channel is called a compound channel if it is disturbed by both types of errors, but not simultaneously. In this thesis, an extensive study of cyclic codes as error correcting codes for compound channels was made. Decoding procedures for compound channels are briefly discussed. Many calculated numerical results are also presented. Author
