Abstract : Properties normally considered peculiar either to block codes for noisy channels or else to variablelength codes for noiseless channels are defined in a uniform manner. Among the basic notions are those of correcting ability, decodability and synchronizability; all are formulated for variable length codes over arbitary alphabets for noisy channels. Theorems establish all the logical implications which exist between the properties considered; examples illustrate their differences. (Author)
