James L. Massey Memorial Collection

Collection Details Full Record

Description

This collection is a tribute to the life and work of James Lee Massey, an information theorist and cryptographer. Massey earned his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University in Notre Dame in 1956. After three years of service in the military, he pursued a PhD at MIT. Massey returned to Notre Dame as a professor, teaching from 1962-1977, where he earned recognition as both a proflic engineer and a favored professor. From 1980 until his retirement in 1998, Massey was a faculty member at ETH Zurich. He passed away in 2013 after a battle with cancer. His accolades include the Claude E. Shannon Award (1988), the IEEE Alexander Graham Bell Medal (1992), and the Marconi Prize (1999).

    James L. Massey
    Patent Number:
    US 3402393
    Description:

    Digital error correcting coding techniques involving the sensing of conditions under which the decoder is operating. In one aspect a monitoring device counts the ones in the decoding decision and in certain parity checks corrected by those decisions. In another aspect the code is supplemented such that one actual decoding error can create a number of apparent errors or ones, which enables early detection of conditions beyond the capability of the decoder. In another aspect fades are detected …

    Patent Number:
    US 4587627
    Description:

    Elements of the finite field GF(2.sup.m) are represented by a vector of m binary digits in such a way that multiplication can be performed by using the same logic function to compute each binary component of the product of two elements, squaring can be performed by logic circuitry that rotates the vector representing the element to be squared, and addition can be performed by logic circuitry that forms the modulo-two sum of the corresponding components of the two vectors representing the elem…

  • Inventor(s):
    James L. Massey, Jimmy K. Omura
    Patent Number:
    US 4567600
    Description:

    A private message of m bits is conveyed from its sender to its receiver by transmission of a public message of m bits, transmission of a public reply of m bits, and another transmission of a public message of m bits such that only the intended receiver can easily recover the private message from the three public messages. This private message now available to both the sender and intended receiver also allows all subsequent private messages between these two points to require only one public m…

    Patent Number:
    US 3429334
    Description:

    Device for correcting or detecting errors in transmission of signal information, having an information signal memory, an adder for forming redundancy signals from connections between the adder and the memory in accordance with a convolutional code, the device constructed to enable backward or forward decoding of the message.
