Basic Coding Theory objects¶
The named code families below are represented in Sage by their own classes, allowing specialised implementations of e.g. decoding or computation of properties:
In contrast, for some code families Sage can only construct their generator matrix and has no other a priori knowledge on them:
Derived Code Constructions¶
Sage supports the following derived code constructions. If the constituent code is from a special code family, the derived codes inherit e.g. decoding or minimum distance capabilities:
Other derived constructions that simply produce the modified generator matrix can be found among the methods of a constructed code.
