Vera Pless (née Stepen, born March 5, 1931) is an American mathematician specializing in combinatorics and coding theory. She is professor emeritus at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Pless was born on Chicago's west side to a Russian Jewish immigrant family. As a teenager, she was more interested in playing the cello than in mathematics, but she left high school two years early to go to the University of Chicago, and finished her studies there in three years

to the theory of error-correction codes, and in particular to linear block codes is provided in this book.

An introduction to the theory of error-correction codes, and in particular to linear block codes is provided in this book. It considers such codes as Hamming codes and Golay codes, correction of double errors, use of finite fields, cyclic codes, BCH codes and weight distributions, as well as design of codes.

The theory of error correcting codes is a foray into number theory. It can be very abstract The discussion involves finite field theory and key ideas like permutations. All this is necessary to understand the topic. It can be very abstract. And this might be the problem that some readers will have with the book. The discussion involves finite field theory and key ideas like permutations. But for students lacking a strong theoretical background in maths, getting to hands on manipulations and getting a strong intuitive understanding of the codes can be difficult. Each chapter does have an extended exercise set. Which is good.

A complete introduction to the many mathematical tools used tosolve practical problems in coding.Mathematicians have been fascinated with the theory oferror-correcting codes since the publication of Shannon's classicpapers fifty years ago. With the proliferation of communicationssystems, computers, and digital audio devices that employerror-correcting codes, the theory has taken on practicalimportance in the solution of coding problems. This solutionprocess requires the use of a wide variety of mathematical toolsand an understanding of how to find mathematical techniques tosolve applied problems.Introduction to the Theory of Error-Correcting Codes, Third Editiondemonstrates this process and prepares students to cope with codingproblems. Like its predecessor, which was awarded a three-starrating by the Mathematical Association of America, this updated andexpanded edition gives readers a firm grasp of the timelessfundamentals of coding as well as the latest theoretical advances.This new edition features:* A greater emphasis on nonlinear binary codes* An exciting new discussion on the relationship between codes andcombinatorial games* Updated and expanded sections on the Vashamov-Gilbert bound, vanLint-Wilson bound, BCH codes, and Reed-Muller codes* Expanded and updated problem sets.Introduction to the Theory of Error-Correcting Codes, Third Editionis the ideal textbook for senior-undergraduate and first-yeargraduate courses on error-correcting codes in mathematics, computerscience, and electrical engineering.
I had to buy this book for my upper division (discrete) math course, and I must say this book is not the best introductory text.

I don't know if there's a better one as my professor professed out of this one rather extensively.

Luckily I had a good professor, so the book wasn't as bad compared to if I had just read this book by itself (and I'm a math major, I can read a math book in a week and understand it!).

It has a relatively "condensed" writing style, even for a math book. There is little discussion as to why I should care about why a code should be treated as a linear subspace of (Z/2Z)^n. There is, come to think of it, little discussion *period*.

I wouldn't recommend buying it unless you had to for a course.

The "Introduction" in the title should be replaced with "A Revision .." The explanations are concise, and not much examples given. Without any prior background, it is difficult to grasp the point of each paragraph.
easy reading, good book
