Abstract : Constructive tests for error-correcting ability, decodability, and synchronizability for variable-length codes over noisy channels are given which generalize the known Sardinas-Patterson and Levenshtein tests. Special emphasis is given to the case of indexed codes defined in terms of distance functions which generalize Hamming distance. (Author)
