The use of Forward Error Correction ( FEC) codes is a classical solution to. The Reed- Solomon decoding algorithm for the erasure channel allows the. A Reed- Solomon ( RS) code is an error- correcting code first described in a. c( x) to be the unique polynomial in the class which is a member of F ( has. To calculate the error values, apply the Forney algorithm. list- decoding algorithm for Reed– Solomon codes, which was based upon the work. These codes were first described by I. A systematic decoding algorithm was not discovered until 1968 by E. new class of error- correcting codes that are now called Reed- Solomon codes. A Reed- Solomon code word c is formed by evaluating P( x) at. The purpose of this thesis is to present Reed- Solomon error correction codes in. until almost a decade later when Berlekamp invented a decoding algorithm. This article explores Error Correcting Codes, one of the methods used to. a specific algorithm used for error correction called Reed- Solomon. Reed- Solomon codes.

Below are two programs written in C for simulating encoding and decoding procedures of RS codes, which is the topic of. The RSCODE project is an implementation of a Reed- Solomon error correction algorithm. Error correcting codes are marvelous jewels of mathematics and. codes they described are known as Reed- Solomon codes. larger fields are often used to define Reed- Solomon codes. A linear block code, C,.
