Hamming Code
  • An error-detecting and -correcting binary code used in data transmission that can detect all single and double bit errors and can correct all single bit errors. Note: Hamming codes must satisfy 2m = n+1 and m = n-k where n is the number of bits in the block, k is the number of information bits in the block, and m is the number of check bits in the block. See also binary digit, block, code, convolutional code, error-correcting code, error-detecting code.
