Códigos de Hartley em corpos finitos (Finite Field Hartley Codes)



A new class of non-binary error-correcting codes, called Hartley codes, is introduced.

The code parity-check matrix, dimension and an upper bound on its minimum distance

are obtained from the eigenstructure of the Hartley number theoretic transform.

A subclass of codes with rate 1/2, namely the balanced Hartley codes, is presented.
