Dc-Constrained Error-Correcting Codes With Small Running Digital Sum

Gerard D. Cohen, Simon N. Litsyn

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Asymptotic bounds on parameters of error-correcting codes with small running digital sum are obtained. The bounds allow us to demonstrate existence of long codes with good error-correcting properties and satisfying some restrictions natural for optical and magnetic recording.
