Success with less: erasure recovery and error correction using fewer bits

Date: Time: 4:00 pm–4:50 pm Location: Avery Hall
Decoding algorithms for error-correcting codes typically take as input all symbols of a received word and attempt to determine the original codeword. In fractional decoding, only an alpha-proportion of symbols are used where alpha<1. Linear exact …
