3Linear Block Codes

There are two structurally different types of codes, block and convolutional codes. Both types of codes have been widely used for error control in communication and/or storage systems. Block codes can be divided into two categories, linear and nonlinear block codes. Nonlinear block codes are never used in practical applications and not much investigated. This chapter gives an introduction to linear block codes. The coverage of this chapter includes (1) fundamental concepts and structures of linear block codes; (2) specifications of these codes in terms of their generator and parity-check matrices; (3) their error-correction capabilities; (4) several important classes of linear block codes; and (5) encoding of two special classes ...
