Abdel-Ghaffar, Khaled Ahmed Sabry (1986) An information- and coding-theoretic study of bursty channels with applications to computer memories. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-03252008-093415
This thesis is a study of two-dimensional bursty channels from the information- theoretic as well as the coding-theoretic points of view. An information-theoretic model of bursty channels is defined and analyzed using probabilistic arguments. Two-dimensional burst correcting codes are developed. Their combinatorial and algebraic structures are examined. Two-dimensional bursty channels are used to model computer memories. The results of this thesis give bounds on the storage capacities of computer memories if sophisticated codes are used.
