Conflict-avoiding codes and cyclic triple systems

Conflict-avoiding codes and cyclic triple systems The paper deals with the problem of constructing a code of the maximum possible cardinality consisting of binary vectors of length n and Hamming weight 3 and having the following property: any 3 × n matrix whose rows are cyclic shifts of three different code vectors contains a 3 × 3 permutation matrix as a submatrix. This property (in the special case w = 3) characterizes conflict-avoiding codes of length n for w active users, introduced in [1]. Using such codes in channels with asynchronous multiple access allows each of w active users to transmit a data packet successfully in one of w attempts during n time slots without collisions with other active users. An upper bound on the maximum cardinality of a conflict-avoiding code of length n with w = 3 is proved, and constructions of optimal codes achieving this bound are given. In particular, there are found conflict-avoiding codes for w = 3 which have much more vectors than codes of the same length obtained from cyclic Steiner triple systems by choosing a representative in each cyclic class. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Problems of Information Transmission Springer Journals

Abstract

The paper deals with the problem of constructing a code of the maximum possible cardinality consisting of binary vectors of length n and Hamming weight 3 and having the following property: any 3 × n matrix whose rows are cyclic shifts of three different code vectors contains a 3 × 3 permutation matrix as a submatrix. This property (in the special case w = 3) characterizes conflict-avoiding codes of length n for w active users, introduced in [1]. Using such codes in channels with asynchronous multiple access allows each of w active users to transmit a data packet successfully in one of w attempts during n time slots without collisions with other active users. An upper bound on the maximum cardinality of a conflict-avoiding code of length n with w = 3 is proved, and constructions of optimal codes achieving this bound are given. In particular, there are found conflict-avoiding codes for w = 3 which have much more vectors than codes of the same length obtained from cyclic Steiner triple systems by choosing a representative in each cyclic class.
