Historically a code refers to a cryptosystem that deals with linguistic units: words, phrases etc. We do not discuss such codes in this book. Here codes are message carriers or information storages or information transmitters which in time of need should not be decoded or read by an enemy or an intruder. When we use very abstract mathematics in using a specific code, it is difficult for non-mathematicians to make use of it. At the same time, one cannot compromise with the capacity of the codes. So the authors in this book have introduced several classes of codes which are explained very non-technically so that a strong foundation in higher mathematics is not needed. The authors also give an easy method to detect and correct errors that occur during transmission. Further some of the codes are so constructed to mislead the intruder. False n-codes, whole n-codes can serve this purpose.
