An Efficient Class of Unidirectional Error Detecting/Correcting Codes
July 1988 (vol. 37 no. 7)
pp. 879-882
A method for constructing a class of t-error correcting and all unidirectional error-detecting systematic codes is proposed. These codes have been shown to be more efficient than codes constructed using other methods proposed in the literature. In a special case, the code constructed is the Berger code.
