Hamming code is a linear error-correcting code named

after its inventor, Richard Hamming. Hamming codes can detect and

correct single-bit errors, and can detect (but not correct)

double-bit errors. In other words, the Hamming distance between the

transmitted and received code-words must be zero or one for

reliable communication.
