Description
This ticket proposes a new implementation for BCH codes.
It contains:
 a new code class,
BCHCode
,  a decoder for BCH codes using the underlying GRS code of a BCH code
 an decoder for Cyclic codes using the surrounding BCH code of a Cyclic Code

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by
I updated this ticket to 7.3b1 and fixed conflicts. I also removed the code related to subfield subcodes as the field embedding mechanism is now in a separate ticket.
comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by
There's some new merge conflicts on this ticket. All of them trivial. I would push myself but I'm in the process of making an actis ticket with all our inreview work and I don't have time :(
comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by
Yup, this is a quite old ticket, and I have quite a lot of them to update. I'm compiling 7.4beta0 atm, will fix this one just after.

Hi all,
For our review day, I push a cleaned version on this BCH code ticket. It's been modified according to the cyclic code ticket, I also fixed some merge issues and made doctests pass.
Yet I didn't check David's code in depth so I think it still need a review. Of course I can do that.
Julien
New commits:
b88510f  Fixed conflicts

efc89ec  Updated to latest beta (7.6.beta2).

0e82ba9  Fixed surrounding_bch_code() and BCH constructor. Other minor fixes (doc, imports).

c18043f  Made all doctests pass. Shorter output for BCH codes.

c9f6835  Improved the doc of BCH codes. Cleaned the code.

comment:12 Changed 5 years ago by
In the description of the class, you ask for 0 \le b \leq n
, shouldn't it be 0 \leq b \le n
?
comment:13 Changed 5 years ago by
Proposed test for bch_to_grs
sage: C = codes.BCHCode(GF(2), 15, 3) sage: RS = C.bch_to_grs() sage: C.generator_matrix() * RS.parity_check_matrix().transpose() == 0
The pass is passed on this example.
comment:14 Changed 5 years ago by
Another interesting example or test (an extremal MDS code)
sage: C = codes.BCHCode(GF(16),17,7) sage: C [17, 6] BCH Code over GF(16) with designed distance 7 sage: C.minimum_distance() 12 # Good ! The code is MDS. Let us see if the framework finds the underlying GRS sage: R=C.bch_to_grs() sage: R [17, 11, 7] Generalized ReedSolomon Code over GF(256) sage: C.generator_matrix() * R.parity_check_matrix().transpose() == 0 True
comment:15 Changed 5 years ago by
Another test (which is brilliantly passed)
sage: C = codes.BCHCode(GF(16),15,7) sage: R = C.bch_to_grs() sage: codes.CyclicCode(code=R) == codes.CyclicCode(code=C)
comment:16 Changed 5 years ago by
Now, some corner cases
sage: C = codes.BCHCode(GF(16),15,15) sage: C.dimension() == 1
comment:17 Changed 5 years ago by
Corner case again. After having changing L111 into
if not (designed_distance <= length and designed_distance >= 1):
the following extreme case seems to work
sage: C = codes.BCHCode(GF(16),15,1) sage: C.dimension() sage: C.generator_polynomial() sage: C.defining_set()
but
sage: C.dual_code()
fails, which is a pity, since the other, more complicated calls, succeed.

comment:25 Changed 5 years ago by
All above tests pass, and some of them have been included in the examples. The dual_code()
issue is not from this class.
I set the ticket to positive review.

Please merge in #20908 and add as a dependency.
comment:29 Changed 5 years ago by
Ok, anyway we need to test the decoder a bit more.

Daniel,
I added some documentation on the underlying GRS code. You can tell me if you agree with it.
Julien
comment:34 Changed 5 years ago by
The maths describing the underlying GRS codes are OK. The wording could be improved, for more brevity and clarity.
