Linear codes on solid bursts and random errors

Document Type : Research Paper


Shivaji College (University of Delhi)


‎The paper presents lower and upper bounds on the number of parity check digits required for a linear code that detects solid bursts of length $b$ or less and simultaneously any $e$ or less random errors‎. ‎An example of such a code is also provided‎. ‎Further‎, ‎codes capable of detecting and simultaneously correcting such errors have also been dealt with‎.
