Abstract: The algebraic decoding of binary quadratic residue codes can be performed using the Peterson or the Berlekamp-Massey algorithm once certain unknown syndromes are determined. In this work, the technique of determining unknown syndromes is extended to the ternary case to decode the expurgated ternary quadratic residue code of length 37.
Keywords: non-binary coding; quadratic residue codes; algebraic decoding.
