Abstract:
The main advantages of random error-correcting majority-logic codes and majority-logic decoding in general are well known and two-fold. Firstly, they offer a partial solution to a classical coding theory problem, that of decoder complexity. Secondly, a majority-logic decoder inherently corrects many more random error patterns than the minimum distance of the code implies is possible. The solution to the decoder complexity is only a partial one because there are circumstances under which a majority-logic decoder is too complex and expensive to implement.
