Knuth's Balanced Codes Revisited

  title={Knuth's Balanced Codes Revisited},
  author={Jos H. Weber and Kees A. Schouhamer Immink},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Information Theory},
In 1986, Don Knuth published a very simple algorithm for constructing sets of bipolar codewords with equal numbers of ¿1¿s and ¿-1¿s, called balanced codes. Knuth's algorithm is well suited for use with large codewords. The redundancy of Knuth's balanced codes is a factor of two larger than that of a code comprising the full set of balanced codewords. In this paper, we will present results of our attempts to improve the performance of Knuth's balanced codes.
