Abstract In this thesis properties of two-dimensional arrayed circulant parity check matrix are used in order to determine a good estimation for determining burst error correcting capability of cyclic codes. The Thesis Project will highlight the computation of burst error correcting codes of code rates that are higher than (2/7) and possessing relatively higher minimum weights as compared to legacy burst error correcting codes such as the Reed Solomon (RS) codes and Bose, Ray-Chaudhuri and Hocquenghem (BCH).

Thesis project starts by developing a circulant parity check matrix. For instance, for an (n, k) cyclic code, an (n x n) circulant parity check matrix, corrects burst errors of lengths up to the error-bust correcting limit of the circulant cyclic code. This is due to the fact that circulant parity check matrices are a class of linear block codes. The code will have maximum burst error correcting capability because the code specification regulates the maximum burst error correction capacity.
