The paper examines some of the properties of some multi-parameter burst error correcting cyclic codes. Some conjectures given earlier are proven, and the codes are shown to be equivalent to single parity check product codes (Gilbert codes) or shortened Gilbert codes. The codes are shown to correct arbitrary burst shapes, and design algorithms are included.


Cet article étudie certaines propriétés des codes cycliques multi-paramètres concernant la correction d’erreurs par lots. Des conjectures avancées précédement sont démontreés ainsi que l’équivalence entre ces codes et les codes de Gilbert (éventuellement raccourcis). On montre que ces codes peuvent corriger des erreurs de répartition arbitraires et des algorithms de résolution sont donnés.
