Early Access

Early Access articles are published articles within a journal that have not yet been assigned to a formal issue. This means they do not yet have a volume number, issue number, or page numbers assigned to them, however, they can still be found and cited using their DOI (Digital Object Identifier). Early Access publication benefits the research community by making new scientific discoveries known as quickly as possible.

Readers can access Early Access articles via the “Early Access” tab for the selected journal.

  • Regenerating codes and codes with locality address the efficiency of the node repair problem. While regeneration reduces the repair bandwidth, locality reduces the number of nodes required for the repair of a small number of nodes. This work considers the combination of minimum storage regenerating codes, an optimal subclass of regenerating codes, and PMDS codes, a particularly strong type of code with locality. Two new constructions are proposed in this paper. The first construction decreases the subpacketization from $ r^n $ to $ r^{\frac{\mu n}{r}} $ for all considered parameters of PMDS codes, and the second one achieves a significantly lower subpacketization $ n-r-1 $ when the global redundancy is $ s = 1 $.

The citations in the column Field Size refer to the field size of the underlying PMDS code used in these constructions. As noted in Remark 3.6, coupled PMDS codes for $ r\nmid n $ can be obtained by puncturing longer codes. The construction of PM-PMDS codes is restricted to $ s = 1 $ and $ \frac{k}{n} < \frac{1}{2} $
