Python | Encoding Decoding using Matrix

  • Last Updated : 30 Dec, 2020

This article is about how we use the matrix to encode and decode a text message and simple strings.
Encoding process :

  1. Take a String convert to corresponding number shown below
  2. convert to 2D matrix(array). Now we have 2×2 matrix!
  3. When we multiply this matrix with encoding matrix we get encoded 2×2 matrix.
  4. now convert to vector(1D array) and Display to user

Decoding process

  • Take Encoded number convert into 2D matrix(array)
  • Inverse Encoding matrix!
  • Multiply Encoded matrix with inverse of encoding matrix.
  • convert to 1D Matrix(array).then convert to corresponding Alphabets.

    Code : Encode.py

    Time Complexity : O(n)(where n is length of message)
