## What is the meaning of blocking?

Wiktionary. blocking(Noun) The act by which something is blocked; an obstruction. blocking(Noun) The precise movement and positioning of actors on a stage in order to facilitate the performance of a play, ballet, film or opera (originally planned using miniature blocks).

**What is the meaning of blocked?**

(blɒkt ) or blocked up. adjective. If something is blocked or blocked up, it is completely closed so that nothing can get through it. The main drain was blocked.

### What does the term blocking mean in Theatre?

Blocking a scene is simply “working out the details of an actor’s moves in relation to the camera.” You can also think of blocking as the choreography of a dance or a ballet: all the elements on the set (actors, extras, vehicles, crew, equipment) should move in perfect harmony with each other.

**What is blocking in computer science?**

A process that is blocked is one that is waiting for some event, such as a resource becoming available or the completion of an I/O operation. In a multitasking computer system, individual tasks, or threads of execution, must share the resources of the system. In this case “blocking” often is seen as not wanted.

## What is block give example?

A block is defined as an area of four streets that goes in a square, or a single street within an area of four streets, or the length of one of those streets. An example of a block is the four streets that go in a square around your house. An example of a block is the street your house is located on.

**Who invented block coding?**

Richard Hamming

### What is block coding called?

Block-based coding, also known as block based-programming, a type of programming language where instructions are mainly represented as blocks. Scratch is a block-based programming language./span>

**Where is block coding used?**

Block-based coding utilizes a drag-and-drop learning environment, where programmers use coding instruction “blocks” to construct animated stories and games. It’s an entry-level activity, where kids can gain a foundation in computational thinking through visuals as opposed to coding that is based in text./span>

## What are the three major steps in block coding?

Block coding normally involves three steps: division, substitution, and combination. In the division step, a sequence of bits is divided into groups of m bits.

**Is Block Coding real coding?**

Block-based coding is very popular in schools as it offers an introduction to coding in a less intimidating way. Instead of traditional text-based programming, block-based coding involves dragging “blocks” of instructions./span>

### What are block codes and convolutional codes?

In block codes, information bits are followed by parity bits. In convolution codes, information bits are spread along the sequence. Block codes are memoryless whereas Convolution codes have memory. Convolution codes use small codewords in comparison to block codes, both achieving the same quality./span>

**What is the difference between line coding and block coding?**

For all communications, line coding is necessary whereas block coding is optional. The process for converting digital data into digital signal is said to be Line Coding. Digital data is found in digital format, which is binary bits. It is represented (stored) internally as series of 1s and 0s.

## What are the coding techniques?

There are four types of coding:

- Data compression (or source coding)
- Error control (or channel coding)
- Cryptographic coding.
- Line coding.

**Why do we do line coding?**

A line code is the code used for data transmission of a digital signal over a transmission line. This process of coding is chosen so as to avoid overlap and distortion of signal such as inter-symbol interference.

### How can errors be detected by using block coding?

If the following two conditions are met, the receiver can detect a change in the original code word by using Block coding technique. The sender creates code words out of data words by using a generator that applies the rules and procedures of encoding (discussed later). …

**Which is the most efficient error correction method?**

The best-known error-detection method is called parity, where a single extra bit is added to each byte of data and assigned a value of 1 or 0, typically according to whether there is an even or odd number of “1” bits./span>

## What are the types of error-correcting codes?

List of error-correcting codes

- AN codes.
- BCH code, which can be designed to correct any arbitrary number of errors per code block.
- Berger code.
- Constant-weight code.
- Convolutional code.
- Expander codes.
- Group codes.
- Golay codes, of which the Binary Golay code is of practical interest.

**What is the minimum Hamming distance for a system detecting 3 errors?**

The minimum Hamming distance between “000” and “111” is 3, which satisfies 2k+1 = 3. Thus a code with minimum Hamming distance d between its codewords can detect at most d-1 errors and can correct ⌊(d-1)/2⌋ errors. The latter number is also called the packing radius or the error-correcting capability of the code.

### Can Hamming code detect 3 bit errors?

The Hamming code adds three additional check bits to every four data bits of the message. Hamming’s (7,4) algorithm can correct any single-bit error, or detect all single-bit and two-bit errors….Hamming(7,4)

Hamming(7,4)-Code | |

Named after | Richard W. Hamming |

**Can Hamming code detect 2 bit errors?**

Hamming codes can detect up to two-bit errors or correct one-bit errors without detection of uncorrected errors. By contrast, the simple parity code cannot correct errors, and can detect only an odd number of bits in error.

## What is Hamming distance example?

Thus the Hamming distance between two vectors is the number of bits we must change to change one into the other. Example Find the distance between the vectors and They differ in four places, so the Hamming distance d(011) = 4. The weight of a vector is equal to the number of 1’s in it.

**What is hamming weight and distance?**

Hamming Weight is the number of non zero digits in any code word. Hamming distance between two code words is the number of places at which the two code words differ./span>

### Why is Hamming distance important?

The key significance of the hamming distance is that if two codewords have a Hamming distance of d between them, then it would take d single bit errors to turn one of them into the other. For a set of multiple codewords, the Hamming distance of the set is the minimum distance between any pair of its members.

**What is P in Minkowski distance?**

The case where p = 1 is equivalent to the Manhattan distance and the case where p = 2 is equivalent to the Euclidean distance. Although p can be any real value, it is typically set to a value between 1 and 2./span>

## What are the two types of distance?

- Euclidean Distance: The most familiar distance measure is the one we normally think of as “distance.”
- Jaccard Distance. We define the Jaccard distance of sets by d(x, y) = 1 − SIM(x, y).
- Cosine Distance.
- Edit Distance.
- Hamming Distance.

**Why Euclidean distance is a bad idea?**

Side note: Euclidean distance is not TOO bad for real-world problems due to the ‘blessing of non-uniformity’, which basically states that for real data, your data is probably NOT going to be distributed evenly in the higher dimensional space, but will occupy a small clusted subset of the space.

### Can a distance be negative?

Distance cannot be negative, and never decreases. Distance is a scalar quantity, or a magnitude, whereas displacement is a vector quantity with both magnitude and direction. It can be negative, zero, or positive.

**What can you deduce if your distance is negative?**

Technically no. Negatives are usually associated with displacement, where one direction is considered positive and the opposite is considered negative. Distance is just how far you have travelled.

## What does it mean when distance is negative?

When, if ever, does negative distance mean something? When you have a defined origin and a given direction. For example: Height above sea level. You can measure the distance of a point from that plane, the elevation of your landscape. If it dips below zero, that point has negative height (=distance).

**Can distance Travelled be zero?**

Displacement can be zero but distance cannot be zero because distance is the total path covered but displacement is the shortst distance between the initial and final position. It can be zero at the end of one round./span>
