Codes are formal languages with special combinatorial and structural properties which are exploited in information processing or information transmission. In this application, codes serve several different purposes. In the following discussion we assume the well-known model of information transmission consisting of a source S sending information to a recipient R via a channel C as illustrated in Fig. 1.1. Before actual transmission, the information is encoded using an encoder γ and, before reception, it is decoded using a decoder δ, During transmission, the encoded information may undergo changes due to environmental conditions or faults in the channel; the potential presence of such changes is modelled by a source N of noise. Moreover, the information may be overheard or even altered during transmission by a hostile participant F.
