**linear code**is usually defined as a subspace of Fn for some field F (since you're talking about bits, you can take F=F2={0,1}). The

**code**C generated by a generating matrix G is the span of the rows of G. The span of a set of vectors in Fn is a subspace of Fn, so C is a

**linear code**.

Also question is, what is a linear block code?

In coding theory, a **linear code** is an error-correcting **code** for which any **linear** combination of codewords is also a codeword. The codewords in a **linear block code** are **blocks** of symbols that are encoded using more symbols than the original value to be sent.

Subsequently, question is, what is syndrome in Hamming code? In coding theory, **Hamming**(7,4) is a linear error-correcting **code** that encodes four bits of data into seven bits by adding three parity bits. It is a member of a larger family of **Hamming codes**, but the term **Hamming code** often refers to this specific **code** that Richard W. **Hamming** introduced in 1950.

Subsequently, one may also ask, what are the properties of linear block code?

2. **LINEAR BLOCK** CODEIn a (n,k) **linear block code**:1st portion of k bits is always identical to the message sequence to be transmitted. 2nd portion of (n-k ) bits are computed from message bits according to the encoding rule and is called parity bits.

What is non binary code?

**Non**–**binary** error correction **codes**. **Codes** for correcting single small errors, and for correcting single small errors and detecting double small errors, in a message of arbitrary length, for an arbitrary number of different signals in the channel, are derived in this paper.

## What is syndrome decoding?

**Syndrome decoding**is a highly efficient method of

**decoding**a linear code over a noisy channel, i.e. one on which errors are made. In essence,

**syndrome decoding**is minimum distance

**decoding**using a reduced lookup table. This is allowed by the linearity of the code.

## What is meant by block code?

**block codes**are a large and important family of error-correcting

**codes**that encode data in blocks. The term

**block code**may also refer to any error-correcting

**code**that acts on a

**block**of bits of input data to produce bits of output data .

## What is the minimum Hamming distance?

**minimum Hamming distance**of a linear block code is equal to the

**minimum Hamming**weight among its non-zero codewords'.

## What is meant by cyclic code?

**cyclic code**is a block

**code**, where the circular shifts of each codeword gives another word that belongs to the

**code**. They are error-correcting

**codes**that have algebraic properties that are convenient for efficient error detection and correction.

## What is meant by distance in cyclic codes?

**distance**of a

**cyclic code**. With a root bound this estimate is given while ignoring all infor- mation about the

**code**except for the length and its defining sets. In particular, no information on the underlying field is used.

## How are cyclic codes different from linear block codes?

**cyclic codes**are a subclass of

**linear codes**. It is designed using feedback shift registers. Explanation: A

**cyclic code**can be generated using generator polynomial and

**block codes**can be generated using generator matrix.

## What is systematic coding?

**coding**theory, a

**systematic code**is any error-correcting

**code**in which the input data is embedded in the encoded output. Conversely, in a non-

**systematic code**the output does not contain the input symbols.

## What is Hamming distance example?

**Hamming Distance**between two integers is the number of bits which are different at same position in both numbers.

**Examples**: Input: n1 = 9, n2 = 14 Output: 3 9 = 1001, 14 = 1110 No.

## What should be the minimum Hamming distance for detecting and correcting upto N number of errors?

**Hamming**codes have a

**minimum distance**of 3, which means that the decoder

**can detect and correct**a single

**error**, but it cannot distinguish a double bit

**error**of some codeword from a single bit

**error**of a different codeword.

## What is minimum Hamming distance in data communication?

**minimum Hamming distance**is used to define some essential notions in coding theory, such as error detecting and error correcting codes. In other words, a code is k-errors correcting if, and only if, the

**minimum Hamming distance**between any two of its codewords is at least 2k+1.

## How is Hamming distance used in error correction?

**Hamming distance**

To measure the **distance** between two codewords, we just count the number of bits that differ between them. The key significance of the **hamming distance** is that if two codewords have a **Hamming distance** of d between them, then it would take d single bit errors to turn one of them into the other.

## What is a code vector?

**code**is a set of binary

**vectors**(of the same length) called.

**code vectors**. The process of converting a message into

**code vectors**is called encoding, and the reverse process is called decoding.

## How do I get the codeword from the generator matrix?

**have**a code over F2 and a k×n

**generator matrix**(that is, k≤n, n is the length of the code and k is the dimension.) then all of the

**codewords**will be given by multiplying by the vectors from Fk2. Since there are 2k of these vectors, there will be 2k

**codewords**.

## What is vector quantization in data compression?

**Vector quantization**(VQ) is a classical

**quantization**technique from signal processing that allows the modeling of probability density functions by the distribution of prototype

**vectors**. It was originally used for

**data compression**. It can also be used for lossy

**data**correction and density estimation.
