**Essential Coding Theory**

by Venkatesan Guruswami, Atri Rudra, Madhu Sudan

**Publisher**: University at Buffalo 2014**Number of pages**: 266

**Description**:

Error-correcting codes (henceforth, just codes) are clever ways of representing data so that one can recover the original information even if parts of it are corrupted. The basic idea is to judiciously introduce redundancy so that the original information can be recovered even when parts of the (redundant) data have been corrupted.
