Course in Coding Theory ; J. H. van Lint, Introduction to Coding Theory. ; and tion theory, and also the branch of it called error-correcting codes. Since. A complete introduction to the many mathematical tools used to solve practical problems in coding. Mathematicians have been fascinated with. It is our goal to present the theory of error-correcting codes in a simple, easily See also the papers on comma-free codes mentioned in the introduction.
Perfect codes Block codes are tied to the sphere packing problem, which has received some attention over the years. In two dimensions, it is easy to visualize. Take a bunch of pennies flat on the table and push them together. The result is a hexagon pattern like a bee's nest. But block codes rely on more dimensions which cannot easily be visualized. The powerful 24,12 Golay code used in deep space communications uses 24 dimensions.
The result is a hexagon pattern like a bee's nest. But block codes rely on more dimensions which cannot easily be visualized. The powerful 24,12 Golay code used in deep space communications uses 24 dimensions. If used as a binary code which it usually is the dimensions refer to the length of the codeword as defined above. The theory of coding uses the N-dimensional sphere model.
For example, how many pennies can be packed into a circle on a tabletop, or in 3 dimensions, how many marbles can be packed into a globe. Other considerations enter the choice of a code. For example, hexagon packing into the constraint of a rectangular box will leave empty space at the corners. As the dimensions get larger, the percentage of empty space grows smaller. But at certain dimensions, the packing uses all the space and these codes are the so-called "perfect" codes.
The only nontrivial and useful perfect codes are the distance-3 Hamming codes with parameters satisfying 2r — 1, 2r — 1 — r, 3 , and the [23,12,7] binary and [11,6,5] ternary Golay codes. First we pack the pennies in a rectangular grid. Each penny will have 4 near neighbors and 4 at the corners which are farther away.
In a hexagon, each penny will have 6 near neighbors. When we increase the dimensions, the number of near neighbors increases very rapidly. The result is the number of ways for noise to make the receiver choose a neighbor hence an error grows as well. This is a fundamental limitation of block codes, and indeed all codes.
It may be harder to cause an error to a single neighbor, but the number of neighbors can be large enough so the total error probability actually suffers.
For example, the syndrome-coset uniqueness property of linear block codes is used in trellis shaping,  one of the best known shaping codes. This same property is used in sensor networks for distributed source coding.
Main article: Convolutional code The idea behind a convolutional code is to make every codeword symbol be the weighted sum of the various input message symbols. This is like convolution used in LTI systems to find the output of a system, when you know the input and impulse response.
So we generally find the output of the system convolutional encoder, which is the convolution of the input bit, against the states of the convolution encoder, registers.

Returning user. Sarwate, many other colleagues at Bell Labs, and especially A. Odlyzko for Preface ix their help. Not all of their suggestions have been followed, however, and the authors are fully responsible for the remaining errors. This conventional remark is to be taken seriously. We should also like to thank all the typists at Bell Labs who have helped with the book at various times, our secretary Peggy van Ness who has helped in countless ways, and above all Marion Messersmith who has typed and retyped most of the chapters.
Sam Lomonaco has very kindly helped us check the galley proofs. Preface to the third printing We should like to thank many friends who have pointed out errors and misprints. The corrections have either been made in the text or are listed below. A Russian edition was published in by Svyaz Moscow , and we are extremely grateful to L.
Bassalygo, I. Grushko and V.
Zinov'ev for producing a very careful translation. They supplied us with an extensive list of corrections. They also point out in footnotes to the Russian edition a number of places we did not cite the earliest source for a theorem.
We have corrected the most glaring omissions, but future historians of coding theory should also consult the Russian edition.
