Abstract : Linear residue codes are useful in a number of applications due to their ease of implementation. For error control in data transmission they do not require special equipment; and encoding and decoding operations can easily be carried out in digital computers. They are also useful for checking arithmetic operations in a computer. An iterative procedure is used to construct linear residue codes for the correction and detection of multiple random errors. This procedure and number -theoretic concepts are used to develop a theory for a class of multiple error correcting codes which have the property that the number of code words is a prime number. Applications to the practical coding problem are also discussed and examples given. (Author)
