This text offers an introduction to error-correcting linear codes for researchers and graduate students in mathematics, computer science and engineering. The book differs from other standard texts in its emphasis on the classification of codes by means of isometry classes. The relevant algebraic are developed rigorously. Cyclic codes are discussed in great detail. In the last four chapters these isometry classes are enumerated, and representatives are constructed algorithmically.
