    Project Description

    Communication networks always seek greater efficiency for data transmission. The internet balances increased loads and higher speeds by sending partially redundant data to avoid having to resend corrupted messages. We propose a new erasure-resilient, minimum data encoding system for packet-switched networks that offers faster data encoding and simpler recovery of missing data than current methods. Plain and summed data are sent. Missing data are recovered from prime length, cyclic projections of the full data set. The efficiency of network transmission systems world-wide will be enhanced if this technique works as predicted.
