A Survey of Progress in Coding Theory in the Soviet Union. Final Report.
Kautz, William H.; Levitt, Karl N.
The results of a comprehensive technical survey of all published Soviet literature in coding theory and its applications--over 400 papers and books appearing before March 1967--are described in this report. Noteworthy Soviet contributions are discussed, including codes for the noiseless channel, codes that correct asymetric errors, decoding for cyclic codes, random-coding bounds on the amount of computations required, and various application criteria. A section directed to the nonspecialist describes the status of the field of coding theory in the Soviet Union, summarizes the major technical results, and compares these with corresponding work in the West. A section for the coding specialist examines new theoretical results, details of coding procedures, and analytical tools described in the Soviet literature. A complet e bibliography is included.
