Codes on s-periodic errors

Pankaj Kumar Das, Vinod Tyagi


In this paper, we study linear codes capable of detecting and correcting s-periodic errors. Lower and upper bounds on the number of parity check digits required for codes detecting such errors are obtained. Another bound on codes correcting such errors is also obtained. An example of a code detecting such errors is provided.


parity check matrix, syndromes, standard array, pe- riodic error.
