Error Locating Codes Dealing with Repeated Low-Density Burst Errors

Bal Kishan Dass, Ritu Arora


This paper presents a study of linear codes which are capable to detect and locate errors which are repeated low-density bursts of length b(fixed) with weight w or less. An illustration for such a kind of code has also been provided.


Error locating codes, burst errors, burst errors of length of b(fixed), repeated low-density burst errors of length b(fixed).
