AN UPPER BOUND ON THE NUMBER OF PARITY CHECKS FOR BURST ERROR DETECTION AND CORRECTION IN EUCLIDEAN CODES Jain, Sapna; Lee, Ki-Suk;
There are three standard weight functions on a linear code viz. Hamming weight, Lee weight, and Euclidean weight. Euclidean weight function is useful in connection with the lattice constructions  where the minimum norm of vectors in the lattice is related to the minimum Euclidean weight of the code. In this paper, we obtain an upper bound over the number of parity check digits for Euclidean weight codes detecting and correcting burst errors.
