Abstract:

The book considers correcting codes error-detecting and error-correcting codes as a universal method which may be used to construct systems which realize any desired conversions of information. The concepts of conversion and the converter are defined methods of describing these concepts are examined. Three classes of conversions which are most often encountered are identified, - transmission or storage, logical conversion, and arithmetic conversion. Correcting codes for all these classes of transformations are examined. Theoretical capabilities are determined, methods of constructing and evaluating the performance of correcting codes are determined. The book is intended for engineers and technicians working in the field of design and use of digital systems for automation and computing, and also may be useful for students in advanced courses of the corresponding specialties.
