- MacWilliams & Sloane, The Theory of Error-Correcting Codes, Chap. 1, Sections 1 to 5

Let V be a binary linear code given
by the generator matrix
[ 101011 ]
G = [ 011110 ]
[ 000111 ]
a) Find a parity check matrix H of V .
b) Construct a maximum likelihood decoding table
for V .
c) Use H to reduce the maximum likelihood decoding
table of b) to an error/syndrome table.
d) Demonstrate how your error/syndrome table can
be used to decode the received vector r = 111101.
e) Use the generator matrix to create a list of
all code vectors of V. Then use this list to determine the minimum distance
