Golay code

Golay code

[gə′lā ‚kōd]
(communications)
A linear, block-based error-correcting code that is particularly suited to applications where short code word length and low latency are important.

This fact was observed for the cases of PRBS and complementary codes [4], particularly with the Golay code pairs.
Applications of Extended Optimal Filters to Golay Code Pairs
In this latter group, we can include the Golay code pairs with null levels of SSL and ISL; however, despite of the advantages provided by the use of these code pairs, its use requires the transmission and reception of two single sequences instead of one [40] slowing down the response time of the systems.
One could say that each particle in the triality diagram brings in its 8-bit Hamming code word to temporarily form the 24-bit binary Golay code word or, equivalently, the 12-bit ternary Golay code word, related to the Leech lattice.
At this time another mathematician, Golay, had already deduced the rest of the Hamming codes from the (7,4)-code provided in Shannon's 1948-paper, and he even provided a few additional codes of his own, the two so-called Golay codes, and published it all in 1949 (Golay, 1949).
Are Hamming codes and Golay codes discovered or invented?
