The course expands the basic knowledge of security codes used in current systems for error detection and correction. It provides the necessary mathematical theory and principles of linear, cyclic codes and codes for the correction of multiple errors, clusters of errors and whole syllables (bytes). Students will also learn how to implement these detections and corrections for different types of transmissions (parallel, serial) when storing data in memory and when transmitting over telecommunication 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. Linear codes.

3. Cyclic codes.

4. Test.

5. Burst error correction.

6. BCH codes.

Study Objective:

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.
