    An extension of the general method of obtaining an optimum system developed by the author ^1 is given to include the case of nonlinear dependence of the observed function on signal parameters. The method affords effective determining of optimum systems designed for the detection and reproduction of signals in the presence of noise using various practically adequate criteria.

    This paper discusses the problem of the minimization of the distortion of a signal by a quantizer when the number of output levels of the quantizer is fixed. The distortion is defined as the expected value of some function of the error between the input and the output of the quantizer. Equations are derived for the parameters of a quantizer with minimum distortion. The equations are not soluble without recourse to numerical methods, so an algorithm is developed to simplify their numerical solution. The case of an input signal with normally distributed amplitude and an expected squared error distortion measure is explicitly computed and values of the optimum quantizer parameters are tabulated. The optimization of a quantizer subject to the restriction that both input and output levels be equally spaced is also treated, and appropriate parameters are tabulated for the same case as above.

  • A note on p -nary adjacent-error-correcting codes

    Binary group codes described by Abramson permit the correction of all single errors and all double errors in adjacent digits, with the use of significantly fewer check digits than codes capable of correcting all double-bit errors. This note considers the generalization of Abramson's codes to the p -nary case, where a symbol alphabet consisting of the digits 0, 1, \cdots , p - 1 is used for transmission, p being a prime number. Examples of such p -nary codes are given, as well as necessary conditions for their existence. These codes bear the same relation to the p -nary Golay codes as Abramson's codes do to the familiar Hamming codes. Some as yet unanswered questions are raised, and suggestions for further possible generalizations are given. View full abstract»

    A method is described which permits the systematic construction of codes capable of error-free transmission, provided errors occur in "clusters" of limited duration. The method is valid for error clusters of any prescribed duration. The codes are relatively easy to implement and decoding operations are straightforward. Specific examples are given and applications to teletype transmission are discussed. View full abstract»
