The duals of MMD codes are proper for error detection
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2003
A linear code, when used for error
detection on a symmetric channel, is said to be proper
if the corresponding undetected
error probability increases monotonously in the symbol
error probability of the channel. Such codes are generally
considered to perform well in error detection.
A number of well-known classes of
linear codes are proper, e.g., the perfect codes, MDS codes,
MacDonald's codes, MMD
codes, and some Near-MDS codes. The aim of this work is to show that
also the duals of MMD codes are proper.
