Coding Theory (Part 2 of 3) – Perfect Error Correction

Introduction Welcome to the second installment of this three-part series on coding theory. If you have not had the opportunity to read the first piece, it is highly recommended that you do before continuing on. It is available here: http://hideoushumpbackfreak.com/post/2016/07/30/Coding-Theory-(Part-1-of-3)-Coding-Theory-Defined It’s rare to find concepts simple yet adroit at the same time. However, Hamming’s contributions to coding theory “fits the bill”. This post begins with a brief introduction to Hamming and a short history lesson before diving into Hamming Distance, and Perfect Codes. A... [More]
