The extra structure and/or symmetry [10] of these codes can often be used to gain a better understanding of their properties. |

Binary BCH code | Cyclic binary code of odd length \(n\) whose zeroes are consecutive powers of a primitive \(n\)th root of unity \(\alpha\) (see Cyclic-to-polynomial correspondence). More precisely, the generator polynomial of a BCH code of designed distance \(\delta\geq 1\) is the lowest-degree monic polynomial with zeroes \(\{\alpha^b,\alpha^{b+1},\cdots,\alpha^{b+\delta-2}\}\) for some \(b\geq 0\).

Binary duadic code | Member of a pair of cyclic linear binary codes that satisfy certain relations, depending on whether the pair is even-like or odd-like duadic. Duadic codes exist for lengths \(n\) that are products of powers of primes, with each prime being \(\pm 1\) modulo \(8\) [12]. |

Binary linear LTC | A binary linear code \(C\) of length \(n\) that is a \((u,R)\)-LTC with query complexity \(u\) and soundness \(R>0\). More technically, the code is a \((u,R)\)-LTC if the rows of its parity-check matrix \(H\in GF(2)^{r\times n}\) have weight at most \(u\) and if \begin{align} \frac{1}{r}|H x| \geq \frac{R}{n} D(x,C) \tag*{(1)}\end{align} holds for any bitstring \(x\), where \(D(x,C)\) is the Hamming distance between \(x\) and the closest codeword to \(x\) [13; Def. 11]. |

A cyclic code is called primitive when \(n=q^r-1\) for some \(r\geq 2\). A shortened cyclic code is obtained from a cyclic code by taking only codewords with the first \(j\) zero entries, and deleting those zeroes. |

Cyclic linear binary code | A binary code of length \(n\) is cyclic if, for each codeword \(c_1 c_2 \cdots c_n\), the cyclically shifted string \(c_n c_1 \cdots c_{n-1}\) is also a codeword. A cyclic code is called primitive when \(n=2^r-1\) for some \(r\geq 2\).

Difference-set cyclic (DSC) code | Cyclic LDPC code constructed deterministically from a difference set. Certain DCS codes satisfy more redundant constraints than Gallager codes and thus can outperform them [17]. |

Dinur code | Member of infinite family of locally testable \([n,n/\text{polylog}(n),d]\) codes with vanishing rate. Code construction relies on a construction utilizing tensor-product codes [18]. |

Divisible code | A linear \(q\)-ary block code is \(\Delta\)-divisible if the Hamming weight of each of its codewords is divisible by divisor \(\Delta\). A \(2\)-divisible (\(4\)-divisible, \(8\)-divisible) code is called even (doubly-even, triply-even) [19,20]. A code is called singly-even if all codewords are even and at least one has weight equal to 2 modulo 4. More generally, a code is \(m\)-even if it is \(2^{m}\)-divisible. |

Dual linear code | For any \([n,k]_q\) linear code \(C\), the dual (or orthogonal) code, \begin{align} C^\perp = \{ y\in GF(q)^{n} ~|~ x\cdot y=0 \forall x\in C\}, \tag*{(2)}\end{align} where the ordinary, standard, or Euclidean inner product is \(x\cdot y = \sum_{i=1}^n x_i y_i\) for coordinates \(x_i,y_i\). |

Elliptic code | Evaluation AG code of rational functions evaluated on points lying on an elliptic curve, i.e., a curve of genus one. |

Evaluation AG code | Also called a function code. Evaluation code over \(GF(q)\) on a set of points \({\cal P} = \left( P_1,P_2,\cdots,P_n \right)\) in \(GF(q)\) lying on an algebraic curve \(\cal X\) whose corresponding vector space \(L\) of functions \(f\) consists of certain polynomials or rational functions. Codewords are evaluations of all functions at the specified points, \begin{align} \left( f(P_1), f(P_2), \cdots, f(P_n) \right) \quad\quad\forall f\in L~. \tag*{(3)}\end{align} The code is denoted as \(C_L({\cal X},{\cal P},D)\), where the divisor \(D\) (of degree less than \(n\)) determines which rational functions to use by prescribing features associated with their zeroes and poles. The original motivation for evaluation codes, which are generalizations of RS codes that expand both the types of functions used as well as the available evaluation points, was to increase code length while maintaining good distance and size. |

Evaluation code | Code whose codewords are evaluations of functions at certain fixed points. Code properties can be inferred from the structure of the functions and the underlying geometric object containing the points, often using results from algebraic geometry. |

Expander code | LDPC code whose parity-check matrix is derived from the adjacency matrix of bipartite expander graph [21] such as a Ramanujan graph or a Cayley graph of a projective special linear group over a finite field [22,23]. Expander codes admit efficient encoding and decoding algorithms and yield an explicit (i.e., non-random) asymptotically good LDPC code family. |

Extended GRS code | A GRS code with an additional parity-check coordinate with corresponding evaluation point of zero. In other words, an \([n+1,k,n-k+2]_q\) GRS code whose polynomials are evaluated at the points \((\alpha_1,\cdots,\alpha_n,0)\). The case when \(n=q-1\), multipliers \(v_i=1\), and \(\alpha_i\) are \(i-1\)st powers of a primitive \(n\)th root of unity is an extended narrow-sense RS code. |

Fibonacci code | The code is defined on an \(L\times L/2\) lattice with one bit on each site, where \(L=2^N\) for an integer \(N\geq 2\). The codewords are defined to satisfy the condition that, for each lattice site \((x,y)\), the bits on \((x,y)\), \((x+1,y)\), \((x-1,y)\) and \((x,y+1)\) (where the lattice is taken to be periodic in both directions) contain an even numbers of \(1\)'s. The codewords can be generated using a one-dimensional cellular automaton of length \(L\) (periodic). The \(2^L\) possible initial states correspond to the \(2^L\) codewords. For each generation, the state of each cell is the xor sum of that cell and its two neighbors in the previous generation. After \(L/2-1\) generations, the entire history generated by the automaton corresponds to a codeword, where the initial state is the first row of the lattice, the first generation is the second row, etc. |

Finite-geometry LDPC (FG-LDPC) code | LDPC code whose parity-check matrix is the incidence matrix of points and hyperplanes in either a Euclidean or a projective geometry. Such codes are called Euclidean-geometry LDPC (EG-LDPC) and projective-geometry LDPC (PG-LDPC), respectively. Such constructions have been generalized to incidence matrices of hyperplanes of different dimensions [24]. |

Folded RS (FRS) code | A linear \([n/m,k]_{q^m}\) code that is a modification of an \([n,k]_q\) RS code such that evaluations are grouped to yield a code with smaller length. In this case, the evaluation points are all powers of a generating field element \(\gamma\), \(\alpha_i=\gamma^i\). Each codeword \(\mu\) of an \(m\)-folded RS code is a string of \(n/m\) symbols, with each symbol being a string of values of a polynomial \(f_\mu\) at consecutive powers of \(\gamma\), \begin{align} \begin{split} \mu\to&\Big(\left(f_{\mu}(\alpha^{0}),\cdots,f_{\mu}(\alpha^{m-1})\right),\left(f_{\mu}(\alpha^{m}),\cdots,f_{\mu}(\alpha^{2m-1})\right)\cdots\\&\cdots,\left(f_{\mu}(\alpha^{n-m}),\cdots,f_{\mu}(\alpha^{n-1})\right)\Big)~. \end{split} \tag*{(4)}\end{align} |

Fountain code | Code based on the idea of generating an endless stream of custom encoded packets for the receiver. The code is designed so that the receiver can recover the original transmission of size \(Kl\) bits after receiving at least \(K\) packets each of \(l\) bits. |

Gallager (GL) code | The first LDPC code construction. The rows of the parity check matrix of this regular code are divided into equal subsets, and columns in the first subset are randomly permuted to yield the corresponding rows in subsequent subsets. For example, the parity-check matrix \begin{align} \begin{pmatrix} 1 & 1 & 0 & 0\\ 0 & 0 & 1 & 1\\ 1 & 0 & 1 & 0\\ 0 & 1 & 0 & 1 \end{pmatrix} \tag*{(5)}\end{align} contains two subsets, each consisting of two rows, and the last two rows are obtained from the first two by exchanging the second and third columns. |

Generalized Gallager code | A LDPC code that generalizes the Gallager codes using the Tanner construction. While Gallager code parity-check matrices consists of repetition code submatrices that are randomly permuted, generalized Gallager code matrices substitute general binary linear codes. |

Generalized RM (GRM) code | Reed-Muller code GRM\(_q(r,m)\) of length \(n=q^m\) over \(GF(q)\) with \(0\leq r\leq m(q-1)\). Its codewords are evaluations of the set of all degree-\(\leq r\) polynomials in \(m\) variables at a set of distinct points \(\{\alpha_1,\cdots,\alpha_n\}\) in \(GF(q)\). |

Generalized RS (GRS) code | An \([n,k,n-k+1]_q\) linear code that is a modification of the RS code where codeword polynomials are multiplied by additional prefactors. Each message \(\mu\) is encoded into a string of values of the corresponding polynomial \(f_\mu\) at the points \(\alpha_i\), multiplied by a corresponding nonzero factor \(v_i \in GF(q)\), \begin{align} \mu\to\left( v_{1}f_{\mu}\left(\alpha_{1}\right),v_{2}f_{\mu}\left(\alpha_{2}\right),\cdots,v_{n}f_{\mu}\left(\alpha_{n}\right)\right)~. \tag*{(6)}\end{align} |

Golay code | A \([23, 12, 7]\) perfect binary linear code with connections to various areas of mathematics, e.g., lattices [20] and sporadic simple groups [25]. Adding a parity bit to the code results in the \([24, 12, 8]\) extended Golay code. Up to equivalence, both codes are unique for their respective parameters. |

Gold code | Member of the family of \([2^r-1, 2r ]\) cyclic binary linear codes characterized by the generator polynomial of degree \(r\) of two maximum-period sequences of period \(2^r-1\) with absolute cross-correlation \( \leq 2^{(r+2)/2}\). Gold codewords are generated using \(m\)-sequences \(x\) and \(y\), which are codewords of simplex codes with check polynomials of degree \(r\) [26]. |

Goldreich-Sudan code | Locally testable \([n,k,d]\) code with \(n = k^{1+O(1/u)}\) and distance \(\Omega(n)\) for query complexity \(u\). The same work also presented a probabilistic construction of codes of size \(k^{1+o(1)}\). |

Graph homology code | This code's properties are derived from the size two chain complex associated with a particular graph. Given a connected simplicial (no self loops or muliedges) graph \(G = (V, E)\), which is not a tree, with incidence matrix \(\Gamma\) we can construct a code by choosing a parity check matrix which consists of all the linearly independent rows of \(\Gamma\). This is a \([n,k,d]\) code with \(n = |E|\), \(k = 1 - \mathcal{X}(G) = 1-|V|+|E|\), where \( \mathcal{X}(G)\) is the euler characteristic of the graph. The code distance is equal to the shortest size of a cycle, guaranteed to exist since \(G\) is not a tree. |

Graph-based code | Binary linear code whose generator matrix is defined using the adjacency matrix of a graph. |

Grassmannian code | Evaluation code of polynomials evaluated on points lying on a Grassmannian \({\mathbb{G}}(\ell,m)\). |

Hamming code | Member of an infinite family of perfect linear codes with parameters \([2^r-1,2^r-r-1, 3]\) for \(r \geq 2\). Their \(r \times (2^r-1) \) parity-check matrix \(H\) has all possible non-zero \(r\)-bit strings as its columns. Adding a parity check yields the \([2^r,2^r-r-1, 4]\) extended Hamming code. |

Hansen toric code | Evaluation code of a linear space of polynomials evaluated on points lying on an affine or projective toric variety. If the space is taken to be all polynomials up to some degree, the code is called a toric RM-type code of that degree. |

Hermitian code | Evaluation AG code of rational functions evaluated on points lying on a Hermitian curve \(H(x,y) = x^{q+1} + y^{q+1} - 1\) over \(\mathbb{F}_q = GF(q)\) in either affine or projective space. Hermitian codes directly improve over RS codes in the sense that RS codes have length at most \(q\) while Hermitian codes have length \(q^3 + 1\). |

Hermitian-hypersurface code | Evaluation code of polynomials evaluated on points lying on a Hermitian hypersurface. |

Hexacode | The \([6,3,4]_4\) self-dual MDS code with generator matrix \begin{align} \begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 & 0 & 1 & 1 & \omega\\ 0 & 1 & 0 & 1 & \omega & 1\\ 0 & 0 & 1 & \omega & 1 & 1 \end{pmatrix}~, \tag*{(8)}\end{align} where \(GF(4) = \{0,1,\omega, \bar{\omega}\}\). Has connections to projective geometry, lattices [20], and conformal field theory [27]. |

Hsu-Anastasopoulos LDPC (HA-LDPC) code | A regular LDPC code obtained from a concatenation of a certain random regular LDPC code and a certain random LDGM code. |

Hyperoval code | A projective code constructed using hyperovals in projective space. |

Incidence-matrix projective code | Code whose generator matrix is the incidence matrix of points and hyperplanes of a projective spaces. Has been generalized to incidence matrices of other structures [28,29][30; Sec. 14.4]. Columns of a code's parity-check matrix can similarly correspond to an incidence matrix. |

Interleaved RS (IRS) code | A modification of RS codes where multiple polynomials are used to define each codeword. Each codeword \(\mu\) of a \(t\)-interleaved RS code is a string of values of the corresponding set \(\{f_\mu^{(1)},f_\mu^{(2)},\cdots,f_\mu^{(t)}\}\) of \(t\) polynomials at the points \(\alpha_i\). The vector codewords can be arranged in an array whose rows are ordinary RS codes for each polynomial \(f^{j}\), yielding the encoding \begin{align} \mu\to\left( \begin{array}{cccc} f_{\mu}^{(1)}\left(\alpha_{1}\right) & f_{\mu}^{(1)}\left(\alpha_{2}\right) & \cdots & f_{\mu}^{(1)}\left(\alpha_{n}\right)\\ f_{\mu}^{(2)}\left(\alpha_{1}\right) & f_{\mu}^{(2)}\left(\alpha_{2}\right) & & f_{\mu}^{(2)}\left(\alpha_{n}\right)\\ \vdots & & \ddots & \vdots\\ f_{\mu}^{(t)}\left(\alpha_{1}\right) & f_{\mu}^{(t)}\left(\alpha_{2}\right) & \cdots & f_{\mu}^{(t)}\left(\alpha_{n}\right) \end{array}\right)~. \tag*{(9)}\end{align} |

A family of such codes is one of the first \(c^3\)-LTCs. |

Linear \(q\)-ary code | An \((n,K,d)_q\) linear code is denoted as \([n,k,d]_q\), where \(k=\log_q K\) need not be an integer. Its codewords form a linear subspace, i.e., for any codewords \(x,y\), \(\alpha x+ \beta y\) is also a codeword for any \(q\)-ary digits \(\alpha,\beta\). This extra structure yields much information about their properties, making them a large and well-studied subset of codes. |

Linear binary code | An \((n,2^k,d)\) linear code is denoted as \([n,k]\) or \([n,k,d]\), where \(d\) is the code's distance. Its codewords form a linear subspace, i.e., for any codewords \(x,y\), \(x+y\) is also a codeword. A code that is not linear is called nonlinear. |

Long code | Locally testable \([2^{2^k},k,d]\) code. The encoder maps a \(k\)-bit string into a codeword that consists of the values of all Boolean functions on the \(k\)-bit string. The code is not practical, but is useful for certain probabilistically checkable proof (PCP) constructions [34]. |

The parity-check matrix of an \((l,r,g\))-MN-LDPC code is of the form \((H_1~H_2)\), where \(H_1\) is a random binary matrix of column weight \(l\) and row weight \(r\), and \(H_2\) is a random binary matrix of column and row weight \(g\) [35]. |

Margulis LDPC code | Member of a class of LDPC codes deterministically constructed using a class of regular graphs with no short cycles. Related explicit LDPC constructions [36] utilize Ramanujan graphs [22,23]. |

Multiplicity code | A generalization of an \(m\)-variant polynomial evaluation code based on evaluating polynomials and \(s\) of their derivatives at all points in \(GF(q)^m\). Originally proposed for coding using the Rosenbloom-Tsfasman metric [39]. Univariate (\(m=1\)) [39,40] and multivariante (\(m>1\)) [41] codes have been proposed. |

Pless symmetry code | Also called a Pless double circulant code. A member of a family of self-dual ternary \([2p+2,p+1]_3\) codes for any prime \(p \equiv -1\) modulo 6. See [45; Sec. 10.5][20; pg. 87] for explicit constructions. |

Polar code | In its basic version, a binary linear polar code encodes \(K\) message bits into \(N=2^n\) bits. The linear transformation that defines the code is given by the matrix \(G^{(n)}=B_N G^{\otimes n}\), where \(B_N\) is a certain \(N\times N\) permutation matrix, and \(G^{\otimes n}\) is the \(n\)th Kronecker power of the \(2\times 2\) kernel matrix \(G=\left[\begin{smallmatrix}1 & 0\\ 1 & 1 \end{smallmatrix}\right]\). To encode \(K\) message bits, one forms an \(N\)-vector \(u\) in which \(K\) coordinates represent the message bits. The remaining \(N-K\) coordinates are set to some fixed values and are said to be frozen. The codeword \(x \in \{0,1\}^N\) is obtained as \(x=u G^{\otimes n}\). |

Polynomial evaluation code | Evaluation code of polynomials at points \({\cal P} = \left( P_1,P_2,\cdots,P_n \right)\) on an algebraic variety \(\cal X\). Codewords \begin{align} \left( f(P_1), f(P_2), \cdots, f(P_n) \right) \tag*{(11)}\end{align} are evaluations of a linear space \(L\) of polynomials \(f\). If the space is taken to be all polynomials up to some degree, the code is called a Reed-Muller-type code or RM-type code of that degree. |

Projective RM (PRM) code | Reed-Muller code for nonzero points \(\{\alpha_1,\cdots,\alpha_n\}\) whose leftmost nonzero coordinate is one, corresponding to an evaluation code of polynomials over projective coordinates. PRM codes PRM\(_q(r,m)\) for \(r<q\) are injective evaluation codes with parameters [46] \begin{align} \left[ q^m+q^{m-1}\cdots +1, {m+r \choose r},(q+1-r)q^{m-1} \right]~. \tag*{(12)}\end{align} |

Projective geometry code | Linear \(q\)-ary \([n,k,d]\) code such that columns of its generator matrix \(G\) does not contain any repeated columns or the zero column. That way, each column corresponds to a distinct point in the projective space \(PG(k-1,q)\) arising from a \(k\)-dimensional vector space over \(GF(q)\). If the columns are linearly independent, then the codewords are collectively called an information set. Columns of a code's parity-check matrix can similarly correspond to points in projective space. This formulation yields connections to projective geometry, which can be applied to determine code properties. |

Projective two-weight code | A projective code whose codewords all have one of two possible nonzero Hamming weights. |

Protograph LDPC code | LDPC code whose parity-check matrix is constructed using the lifting procedure (defined below) applied to the incident matrix of a sparse graph called, in this context, a protograph. Its parity check matrix can be put into the form of a block matrix consisting of either a sum of permutation sub-matrices or the zero sub-matrix. |

Quadric code | Evaluation code of polynomials evaluated on points lying on a quadric hypersurface. |

Quasi group-algebra code | A \(q\)-ary linear code based on a finite group \( G \) of order \(n/\ell\) for some index \(\ell\). The code is a right submodule of the direct sum of \(\ell\) copies of the group algebra \(\mathbb{F}_q G\). A quasi group-algebra code for an Abelian group is called an Abelian quasi group-algebra code. |

Quasi-cyclic LDPC (QC-LDPC) code | LDPC code that can be put into quasi-cyclic form. Its parity check matrix can be put into the form of a block matrix consisting of either circulant permutation sub-matrices or the zero sub-matrix. Such codes are often constructed by lifting certain protographs into such block matrices [47]. Their simple structure makes them useful for several wireless communication standards. |

Raptor (RAPid TORnado) code | Raptor codes are concatenated erasure codes with two layers: an outer pre-code and a Luby-Transform (LT) inner code. The pre-code is a linear binary erasure code, which is applied first to the input to create some redundant data. The LT code is then applied to the intermediate symbols from the pre-code to generate final output symbols to be transmitted. |

Reed-Muller (RM) code | Member of the RM\((r,m)\) family of linear binary codes derived from multivariate polynomials. The code parameters are \([2^m,\sum_{j=0}^{r} {m \choose j},2^{m-r}]\), where \(r\) is the order of the code satisfying \(0\leq r\leq m\). First-order RM codes are also called biorthogonal codes, while \(m\)th order RM codes are also called universe codes. Punctured RM codes RM\(^*(r,m)\) are obtained from RM codes by deleting one or more coordinates from each codeword. |

Reed-Solomon (RS) code | An \([n,k,n-k+1]_q\) linear code based on polynomials over \(GF(q)\). Let \(\{\alpha_1,\cdots,\alpha_n\}\) be \(n\) distinct points in \(GF(q)\). An RS code encodes a message \(\mu=\{\mu_0,\cdots,\mu_{k-1}\}\) into \(\{f_\mu(\alpha_1),\cdots,f_\mu(\alpha_n)\}\) using a message-dependent polynomial \begin{align} f_\mu(x)=\mu_0+\mu_1 x + \cdots + \mu_{k-1}x^{k-1}. \tag*{(13)}\end{align} In other words, each message \(\mu\) is encoded into a string of values of the corresponding polynomial \(f_\mu\) at the points \(\alpha_i\), \begin{align} \mu\to\left( f_{\mu}\left(\alpha_{1}\right),f_{\mu}\left(\alpha_{2}\right),\cdots,f_{\mu}\left(\alpha_{n}\right)\right) \,. \tag*{(14)}\end{align} |

Regular LDPC code | An LDPC code whose parity-check matrix has a fixed number of entries for each row or column. |

Regular binary Tanner code | A binary Tanner code defined on a regular bipartite graph, with the inner code being the same for all vertices. |

Repeat-accumulate (RA) code | An LDPC code whose parity-check matrix has weight-two columns arranged in a step-like pattern for its last columns [48]. |

Repeat-accumulate-accumulate (RAA) code | Generalization of the RA code in which two accumulators and permutations are used. |

Repetition code | \([n,1,n]\) binary linear code encoding one bit of information into an \(n\)-bit string. The length \(n\) needs to be an odd number, since the receiver will pick the majority to recover the information. The idea is to increase the code distance by repeating the logical information several times. It is a \((n,1)\)-Hamming code. |

Residue AG code | Also called a differential code. Linear \(q\)-ary code defined using a set of points \({\cal P} = \left( P_1,P_2,\cdots,P_n \right)\) in \(GF(q)\) lying on an algebraic curve \(\cal X\) and a linear space \(\Omega\) of certain rational differential forms \(\omega\). Codewords are evaluations of residues of the differential forms in the specified points, \begin{align} \left(\text{Res}_{P_{1}}(\omega),\text{Res}_{P_{2}}(\omega),\cdots,\text{Res}_{P_{n}}(\omega)\right)\quad\quad\forall\omega\in\Omega~. \tag*{(15)}\end{align} The code is denoted as \(C_{\Omega}({\cal X},{\cal P},D)\), where the divisor \(D\) determines which rational rational differential forms to use. |

Roth-Lempel code | Member of a \(q\)-ary linear code family that includes many examples of MDS codes that are not GRS codes. |

Ruled-surface code | Evaluation code of polynomials evaluated on points lying on a ruled surface. |

Schubert code | Evaluation code of polynomials evaluated on points lying on a Schubert variety. |

Self-dual linear code | An \([n,n/2]_q\) code that is equal to its dual, \(C^\perp = C\), where the dual is defined with respect to an inner product, most commonly either Euclidean or Hermitian. Self-dual codes exist only for even lengths and have dimension \(k=n/2\). |

Serge-variety RM-type code | Evaluation code of polynomials evaluated on points lying on a Serge variety. |

Simplex code | An \([n,k,q^{k-1}]_q\) projective code with \(n=\frac{q^k-1}{q-1}\), denoted as \(S(q,k)\). The columns of the generator matrix are in one-to-one correspondence with the elements of the projective space \(PG(k-1,q)\), with each column being a chosen representative of the corresponding element. The name of the code comes from the property that, for \(q=2\), the codewords form a \((2^k-1)\)-simplex of constant edge length if the codewords are interpreted as points in \(\mathbb{R}^n\). |

Single parity-check (SPC) code | An \([n,n-1,2]\) linear binary code whose codewords consist of the message string appended with a parity-check bit or parity bit such that the parity (i.e., sum over all coordinates of each codeword) is zero. If the Hamming weight of a message is odd (even), then the parity bit is one (zero). This code requires only one extra bit of overhead and is therefore inexpensive.' |

Spatially coupled LDPC (SC-LDPC) code | LDPC code whose parity-check matrix is constructed by "spatially" coupling several copies of a regular LDPC parity-check matrix in chain-like fashion (or, more generally, in grid-like fashion) to yield a band matrix. A finite-length chain is then capped by imposing either open boundary conditions (yielding non-tail-biting SC-LDPC codes) or open boundary conditions (yielding tail-biting SC-LDPC codes); sometimes extra terminating vertices are added to the ends of the chain. Matrices corresponding to translationally invariant chains are called time-variant, and otherwise are called time-invariant. These codes can be constructed, e.g., using the lifting procedure or using edge-cutting vectors [49]. |

Suzuki-curve code | Evaluation AG code of rational functions evaluated on points lying on a Suzuki curve. |

Ta-Shma zigzag code | Member of a family of \(\epsilon\)-balanced codes that nearly achieves the asymptotic Gilbert-Varshamov bound. The codes have relative distance \(\frac{1}{2}-\frac{\epsilon}{2}\) and rate of order \(\Omega (\epsilon^{2+\beta})\) for \(\beta\to 0\) as \(n\to\infty\) [50]. |

Tamo-Barg code | A family of \(q\)-ary polynomial evaluation codes that are optimal LRCs and for which \(q\) is comparable to \(n\). |

Tamo-Barg-Vladut code | Polynomial evaluation code on algebraic curves, such as Hermitain or Garcia-Stichtenoth curves, that is constructed to be an LRC code. Codes can be constructed to be be able to recover locally after one or more erasures as well as to tackle the availability problem. |

Tanner code | A linear \(q\)-ary code defined on a bipartite graph similar to a Tanner graph. This generalized Tanner graph consists of variable nodes and constraint nodes, with the generalization being that the constraint nodes of degree \(r\) now represent a linear codes of length \(r\). |

Tanner-Sridhara-Fuja (TSF) code | Array QC-LDPC code constructed from a cyclically shifted identity matrix; see [51; Exam. 21.6.5]. |

Ternary Golay code | A \([11,6,5]_3\) perfect ternary linear code with connections to various areas of mathematics, e.g., lattices [20] and sporadic simple groups [25]. Adding a parity bit to the code results in the \([12, 6, 6]\) extended ternary Golay code. Up to equivalence, both codes are unique for their respective parameters. |

Tetracode | The \([4,2,3]_3\) self-dual MDS code with generator matrix \begin{align} \begin{pmatrix}1 & 0 & 1 & 1\\ 0 & 1 & 1 & 2 \end{pmatrix}~, \tag*{(16)}\end{align} where \(GF(3) = \{0,1,2\}\). Has connections to lattices [20]. |

Tornado code | Stub. |

Tsfasman-Vladut-Zink (TVZ) code | Member of a family of residue AG codes where \(\cal X\) is either Drinfeld modular curve, a classic modular curve, or a Garcia-Stichtenoth curve. |

Two-weight code | A linear \(q\)-ary code whose codewords all have one of two possible nonzero Hamming weights. |

Weight-two code | A length-\(n\) binary code whose codewords all have Hamming weight two. Such codes provide slightly extra redundancy for storage of small-scale information such as ZIP codes or decimal digits. |

Wozencraft ensemble code | Stub. |

Zetterberg code | Family of binary cyclic \([2^{2s}+1,2^{2s}-4s+1]\) codes with distance \(d>5\) generated by the minimal polynomial \(g_s(x)\) of \(\alpha\) over \(GF(2)\), where \(\alpha\) is a primitive \(n\)th root of unity in the field \(GF(2^{4s})\). They are quasi-perfect codes and are one of the best known families of double-error correcting binary linear codes |

\([7,4,3]\) Hamming code | Second-smallest member of the Hamming code family with generator matrix \begin{align} \left(\begin{array}{ccccccccccc} 1 & 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & 1 & 0\\ 0 & 1 & 0 & 0 & 1 & 0 & 1\\ 0 & 0 & 1 & 0 & 0 & 1 & 1\\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 & 1 & 1 & 1 \end{array}\right)~. \tag*{(17)}\end{align} Up to equivalence, this is the only nontrivial length-seven perfect binary code containing the zero vector. |

\([8,4,4]\) extended Hamming code | Extension of the \([7,4,3]\) Hamming code by a parity-check bit. The smallest doubly-even self-dual code. |

\(q\)-ary Hamming code | Member of an infinite family of perfect linear \(q\)-ary codes with parameters \([(q^r-1)/(q-1),(q^r-1)/(q-1)-r, 3]_q\) for \(r \geq 2\). |

\(q\)-ary LDGM code | \(q\)-ary linear code with a sparse generator matrix. Alternatively, a member of an infinite family of \([n,k,d]_q\) codes for which the number of nonzero entries in each row and column of the generator matrix are both bounded by a constant as \(n\to\infty\). |

\(q\)-ary LDPC code | A \(q\)-ary linear code with a sparse parity-check matrix. Alternatively, a member of an infinite family of \([n,k,d]_q\) codes for which the number of nonzero entries in each row and column of the parity-check matrix are both bounded above by a constant as \(n\to\infty\). |

\(q\)-ary duadic code | Member of a pair of cyclic linear binary codes that satisfy certain relations, depending on whether the pair is even-like or odd-like duadic. Duadic codes exist only when \(q\) is a square modulo \(n\) [12]. |

\(q\)-ary linear LTC | A \(q\)-ary linear code \(C\) of length \(n\) that is a \((u,R)\)-LTC with query complexity \(u\) and soundness \(R>0\). More technically, the code is a \((u,R)\)-LTC if the rows of its parity-check matrix \(H\in GF(q)^{r\times n}\) have weight at most \(u\) and if \begin{align} \frac{1}{r}|H x| \geq \frac{R}{n} D(x,C) \tag*{(18)}\end{align} holds for any \(q\)-ary string \(x\), where \(D(x,C)\) is the \(q\)-ary Hamming distance between \(x\) and the closest codeword to \(x\) [13; Def. 11]. A code satisfying the above constraint without the weight-\(u\) restriction is called an \(R\)-testable code [52]. |

\(q\)-ary parity-check code | Also known as a sum-zero or zero-sum code. An \([n,n-1,2]_q\) linear \(q\)-ary code whose codewords consist of the message string appended with a parity-check or zero-sum check digit such that the sum over all coordinates of each codeword is zero. |

\(q\)-ary quadratic-residue (QR) code | Member of a quadruple of cyclic \(q\)-ary codes of prime length \(n\) where \(q\) is prime and a quadratic residue modulo \(n\). The codes are constructed using quadratic residues and nonresidues of \(n\). |

\(q\)-ary repetition code | \([n,1,n]_q\) binary linear code encoding consisting of codewords \((j,j,\cdots,j)\) for \(j \in GF(q)\). The length \(n\) needs to be an odd number, since the receiver will pick the majority to recover the information. |
