Simple algorithms for BCH decoding
Proposes some simple algorithms for decoding BCH codes. The authors show that the pruned FFT is an effective method for evaluating syndromes and for finding the roots of error-locator polynomials. They show that a simple variation of the basic Gaussian elimination procedure can be adapted to compute the error-locator polynomial efficiently for codes with small designed distance. Finally, they give a procedure for computing the error values that has half the complexity of the Forney algorithm.
