(M3L1) Lesson 1: Introduction to Linear Block Codes

In this lesson, linear block codes are defined and described in terms of generator and paritycheck matrices, the parity-check equations for systematic code are derived, and encoding of linear block codes is discussed.

Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to:

- Define the linear block code.

- Define the generator matrix.

- Define the systematic linear block code.

- Define the parity-check matrix.

- Know how to implement the systematic linear block code.
