Hamming Disatnce

  1. Jul 5, 2009 #1
    Hi,
    I don't know where to post this question, so I'm posting it here.

    I wish to study some basic properties of Hamming distance (e.g. what is the number of different binary N-bit strings so that the maximum Hamming distance between them is m etc.).

    Can anyone refer me some books or papers (/documents etc)?

    Search your library or the internets for "information theory" and "error correction codes".
