Description:Bursts error in multi-dimension in many communication systems such as memory devices, broadband wireless communication systems and next-generation HDD systems. The common handling of the bursts error is using interleaver to decorrelate the bursts in time and space domain, which is not the optimal solution. The project is aimed to study the states-of-art of error correcting codes for multi-dimension burst errors.

Requirements: Coding theory; Mathematical modelling and some basic understanding of graph algorithms
