Abstract : Research was continued on the study of error detecting and error correcting codes for achieving the reliable transmission or storage of information over a noisy communications channel or imperfect memory. Three specific research areas were investigated. These were: (1) The design and performance evaluation of error detecting codes; (2) Decoding strategies for redundant discrete Fourier transform codes and their applications to impulse noise cancellation; and (3) Coding and decoding of convolutional codes.
