Polytope Representations for Linear-Programming Decoding of Non-Binary Linear Codes

Vitaly Skachek, Mark F. Flanagan, Eimear Byrne, Marcus Greferath

In previous work, we demonstrated how decoding of a non-binary linear code could be formulated as a linear-programming problem. In this paper, we study different polytopes for use with linear-programming decoding, and show that for many classes of codes these polytopes yield a complexity advantage for decoding. These representations lead to polynomial-time decoders for a wide variety of classical non-binary linear codes.
