  1. Erasure code

    In information theory, an erasure code is a forward error correction code for the binary erasure channel, which transforms a message of k symbols into a longer message with n symbols such that the original message can be recovered from a subset of the n symbols. The fraction r = k/n is called the code rate, the fraction k’/k, where k’ denotes the number of symbols required for recovery, is called reception efficiency.
