**ABSTRACT:**We generalize the unique decoding algorithm for one-point AG codes over the Miura-Kamiya $C_{ab}$ curves proposed by Lee, Bras-Amor\'os and O'Sullivan to general one-point AG codes, without any assumption. We also extend their unique decoding algorithm to list decoding, modify it so that it can be used with the Feng-Rao improved code construction, prove equality between its error correcting capability and half the minimum distance lower bound by Andersen and Geil that has not been done in the original proposal except for one-point Hermitian codes, remove the unnecessary computational steps so that it can run faster, and analyze its computational complexity in terms of multiplications and divisions in the finite field. As a unique decoding algorithm, the proposed one is as fast as the BMS algorithm for one-point Hermitian codes, and as a list decoding algorithm it is much faster than the algorithm by Beelen and Brander.03/2012; - [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**We generalize the list decoding algorithm for Hermitian codes proposed by Lee and O'Sullivan based on Gr\"obner bases to general one-point AG codes, under an assumption weaker than one used by Beelen and Brander. By using the same principle, we also generalize the unique decoding algorithm for one-point AG codes over the Miura-Kamiya $C_{ab}$ curves proposed by Lee, Bras-Amor\'os and O'Sullivan to general one-point AG codes, without any assumption. Finally we extend the latter unique decoding algorithm to list decoding, modify it so that it can be used with the Feng-Rao improved code construction, prove equality between its error correcting capability and half the minimum distance lower bound by Andersen and Geil that has not been done in the original proposal, and remove the unnecessary computational steps so that it can run faster.CoRR. 01/2012; abs/1201.6248. - [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**We derive the Wu list-decoding algorithm for Generalised Reed-Solomon (GRS) codes by using Gr\"obner bases over modules and the Euclidean algorithm (EA) as the initial algorithm instead of the Berlekamp-Massey algorithm (BMA). We present a novel method for constructing the interpolation polynomial fast. We give a new application of the Wu list decoder by decoding irreducible binary Goppa codes up to the binary Johnson radius. Finally, we point out a connection between the governing equations of the Wu algorithm and the Guruswami-Sudan algorithm (GSA), immediately leading to equality in the decoding range and a duality in the choice of parameters needed for decoding, both in the case of GRS codes and in the case of Goppa codes.IEEE Transactions on Information Theory 11/2012; · 2.62 Impact Factor
