This chapter gives a short introduction to codes and coding theory. The reader has nothing to worry about: Justinian the Great, the Eastern Roman Emperor who in 6th century rewrote Roman law has got nothing to do with it! Coding theory studies the mathematical problem of transmitting data through channels in which interference is present. During the transmission, it may happen that the noise present in the channel modifies some of the transmitted data, jeopardising the intelligibility of the message on arrival.
