    Irving Reed and Gustav Solomon who developed the ubiquitous Reed-Solomon codes used in Voyager and also in the first CDs. Berlekamp and Massey gave the first practical decoders for these codes. In 1999, Madhu Sudan and Guruswami further improved the utility of the codes with an enhanced decoder algorithm.
