Noga Alon, Rina Panigrahy, Sergey Yekhanin#### Deterministic Approximation Algorithms for the Nearest Codeword Problem

Noga Alon, Rina Panigrahy, Sergey Yekhanin

The Nearest Codeword Problem (NCP) is a basic algorithmic question in the theory of error-correcting codes. Given a point v in an n-dimensional space over F_2 and a linear subspace L in F_2^n of dimension k NCP asks to find a point l in L that minimizes the (Hamming) distance ... more >>>
