The list-decodable code has been an active topic in theoretical computer science since the seminal papers of M. Sudan and V. Guruswami in 1997-1998. There are general result about the Johnson radius and the list-decoding capacity theorem. However few results about general constraints on rates, list-decodable radius and list sizes for listdecodable codes have been obtained. List-decodable codes are also considered in rank-metric, subspace metric, cover-metric, pair metric and insdel metric… 
Upper bounds on the length function for covering codes
New upper bounds on `q(tR + 1, R) are obtained in the following forms: q is an arbitrary prime power, c is independent of q, and q is large enough.


Efficiently List-Decodable Insertion and Deletion Codes via Concatenation
A family of insdel codes along with their efficient encoding and decoding algorithms through concatenation method is constructed which provides a Zyablov-type bound for insdel metric codes.
A Lower Bound on List Size for List Decoding
It is proved that there exists a constant cq > 0 and a function fq such that for small enough e > 0, if C is list-decodable to radius (1-1/q)(1- e)n with list size cq/ e2, then C has at most fq( e) codewords, independent of n .
Construction and covering properties of constant-dimension codes
A new class of CDCs based on KK codes are constructed, whose cardinalities are greater than previously proposed CDCs, and a low-complexity decoding algorithm is proposed that corrects more errors than a bounded subspace distance decoder by taking advantage of the structure of the authors' augmented KK code.
Combinatorial bounds for list decoding
This work presents a polynomial time constructible asymptotically good family of binary codes of rate /spl Omega/(/spl epsi//sup 4/) that can be list-decoded in polynometric time from up to a fraction of errors, using lists of size O(/spl Epsi //sup -2/).
Fundamental Properties of Sum-Rank-Metric Codes
This paper investigates the theory of sum-rank-metric codes for which the individual matrix blocks may have different sizes. Various bounds on the cardinality of a code are derived, along with their
Algebraic List-Decoding in Projective Space: Decoding With Multiplicities and Rank-Metric Codes
Two separate methods are developed, via two different approaches, for list decoding subspace codes and rank-metric codes that provide improved tradeoffs between rate and error-correction capability and a folded version of Koetter-Kschischang codes is constructed.

On List Decoding of Insertion and Deletion Errors
An upper bound on the list decoding radius of an insdel code in terms of its rate is provided and a Zyablov-type bound for insdel errors is obtained and a family of explicit insdel codes is constructed with efficient list decoding algorithm.
Optimally resilient codes for list-decoding from insertions and deletions
The main technical work in the results is proving the existence of code families of sufficiently large size with good list-decoding properties for any combination of δ,γ within the claimed feasibility region.
