I think:  X = \mathbb{F}_2^d = \{ x_1, \ldots, x_{2^d} \}.  should read:  X = \mathbb{F}_2^n = \{ x_1, \ldots, x_{2^d} \}.

otherwise you have a mismatch in the number of dimensions (talk) 23:11, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Not true. Have made the construction in the article a bit clearer. The things in the curly braces are points, not the values of coordinates. Trogsworth (talk) 23:29, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

still wrong notation[edit]

The confusion between d and r is not fixed--still wrong in the first paragraph, at least if you're going to use the notation RM(d,r), where r is the order. The length should be d=2^n e.g. With these changes in the first paragraph, the rest of the page seems OK.

I think that it would be better to use the more common notation RM(r,m) instead of RM(d,r). The current notation leads to a confsion with the code distance. Moreover, RM(r,m) is more common in the literature (like in one of the most known books: S. Lin and D. J. Costello - Error Control Coding).

Templates: CCSDS is pretty obscure; where is "Error Correction Coding"?[edit]

It's amusing that the only template is the "Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems", which is useful for only a rather exclusive group. I'd love an "Error Correction Coding" template. Sanpitch (talk) 15:42, 24 August 2013 (UTC)
