Dual Code

In coding theory, the dual code of a linear code

is the linear code defined by


is a scalar product. In linear algebra terms, the dual code is the annihilator of C with respect to the bilinear form <,>. The dimension of C and its dual always add up to the length n:

A generator matrix for the dual code is a parity-check matrix for the original code and vice versa. The dual of the dual code is always the original code.

Famous quotes containing the words code and/or dual:

    Wise Draco comes, deep in the midnight roll
    Of black artillery; he comes, though late;
    In code corroborating Calvin’s creed
    And cynic tyrannies of honest kings;
    He comes, nor parlies; and the Town, redeemed,
    Gives thanks devout; nor, being thankful, heeds
    The grimy slur on the Republic’s faith implied,
    Which holds that Man is naturally good,
    And—more—is Nature’s Roman, never to be
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Thee for my recitative,
    Thee in the driving storm even as now, the snow, the winter-day
    Thee in thy panoply, thy measur’d dual throbbing and thy beat
    Thy black cylindric body, golden brass and silvery steel,
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
