Codes detecting, locating and correcting random errors occurring in multiple sub-blocks.



Syndromes, Parity check digits, Bounds, Error locating codes


In this paper, we study bounds on the number of check digits of linear codes that can detect multiple sub-blocks each affected by e or less random errors and can locate such corrupted multiple sub-blocks. Further, we obtain an upper bound on the number of check digits of linear codes which can correct such errors occurring in multiple sub-blocks. We also give examples of such codes.
