Abstract : The paper gives a survey of recent advances in majority-logic decoding for linear block codes. General majority-logic decoding algorithms are reviewed. The decoding schemes for product codes and the finite geometry codes are discussed. An improved decoding algorithm for the finite geometry codes is described. The improved decoding algorithm greatly reduces the decoding complexity of the codes. It should make the finite geometry codes very attractive in practical use on error-control systems. (Author)
