Efficient Decoding of Folded Linearized Reed-Solomon Codes in the Sum-Rank Metric

  title={Efficient Decoding of Folded Linearized Reed-Solomon Codes in the Sum-Rank Metric},
  author={Felicitas H{\"o}rmann and Hannes Bartz},
. Recently, codes in the sum-rank metric attracted attention due to several applications in e.g. multishot network coding, distributed storage and quantum-resistant cryptography. The sum-rank analogs of Reed–Solomon and Gabidulin codes are linearized Reed–Solomon codes. We show how to construct h -folded linearized Reed–Solomon (FLRS) codes and derive an interpolation-based decoding scheme that is capable of correcting sum-rank errors beyond the unique decoding radius. The presented decoder can…

Error-Erasure Decoding of Linearized Reed-Solomon Codes in the Sum-Rank Metric

This work proposes the first known error-erasure decoder for LRS codes to unleash their full potential for multishot network coding by incorporating erasures into the known syndrome-based Berlekamp-Massey-like decoder.

Fast Kötter-Nielsen-Høholdt Interpolation over Skew Polynomial Rings

A fast divide-and-conquer variant of K¨otter–Nielsen–Høholdt (KNH) interpolation algorithm that inputs a list of linear functionals on skew polynomial vectors, and outputs a reduced Gr¨obner basis of their kernel intersection and matches the previous best speeds for these tasks.

Covering Properties of Sum-Rank Metric Codes

This work intends to answer the question: what is the minimum cardinality of a code given a sum-rank covering radius, and shows the relations of this quantity between different metrics and provides several lower and upper bounds for sum-Rank metric codes.



Fast Decoding of Interleaved Linearized Reed-Solomon Codes and Variants

Fast minimal approximant basis interpolation techniques are generalized to obtain efficient decoding schemes for ILRS codes (and variants) with subquadratic complexity in the code length to be the first being able to correct errors beyond the unique decoding region in the sum-rank, sum-subspace and skew metric.

A heuristic argument and simulation results indicate that the list size is in fact one for most channel realizations up to the maximal decoding radius, and the best upper bound on the listsize is exponential.

Decoding of block and convolutional codes in rank metric

A special class of convolutional codes in rank metric is introduced and an efficient decoding algorithm for these codes is proposed, which is (partial) unit memory codes, built upon rank-metric block codes.

Fast Decoding of Codes in the Rank, Subspace, and Sum-Rank Metric

A skew-analogue of the existing PM-Basis algorithm for matrices over ordinary polynomials is described, which captures the bulk of the work in multiplication of skew polynomial rings and the complexity benefit comes from existing algorithms performing this faster than in classical quadratic complexity.

The main objective is to develop a theory of residues for skew rational functions (which are, by definition, the quotients of two skew polynomials) and prove a skew analogue of the residue formula and a skew analog of the classical formula of change of variables for residues.
