The goal of the course is to present various ways to detect or correct individual errors and burst errors in data stored into memories or transmitted via channels.


Linear and abstract algebra basics, design of combinational and sequential logic circuits at the gate level.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Error control codes - basic principles.

2. Linear codes.

3. Codes generated by a polynomial.

4. Cyclic codes, finite fields, and minimal polynomials.

5. Burst error correction codes.

6. Hardware for burst error correction methods.

7. Sums and products of codes and RM codes.

8. BCH codes.

9. Correction codes for byte errors, generalized Hamming codes.

10. RS (Read-Solomon) codes.

11. Convolutional and turbo codes.

12. Codes for arithmetic operations.

Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Finite fields and polynomials.

2. Lineární kódy.

3. Cyclic codes.

4. Test.

5. Burst error correction.

6. BCH codes.

Study Objective:

Errors can be superposed on memory stored data or on data transmitted via channels. Codes to detect or even to correct of errors, theirs burst or group will bepresented, as well as coder and decoder design.
