Part of the Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften book series (GL, volume 290)


This chapter surveys recent work on finding bounds for error-correcting codes, constant weight codes, spherical codes, sphere packings, and other packing problems in 2-point-homogeneous spaces. A simplified account is given of the general machinery developed by Kabatiansky and Levenshtein for setting up such problems as linear programs. Many other recent bounds are also described.
