Also, realize that the Fourier transform that can be used to
define a Reed-Solomon code lives in a Galois Field, so the
algebra is different from what a DSP is typically optimize to
compute using (real-valued) multipliers.
Finally, one does not "compute" the Z-transform of things, it's
more of a notation for analysis and representation.

A Reed-Solomon error correction scheme doesn't make use of either
transform. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reed-Solomon_error_correction

Hi all, I would like to have your opignon, which transform is better :
Z-transform or Fourier transform for implementation of reed solomon
codec? if it will be implemented on a DSP processor,
what would be the performance? will I get a high speed with Z-
transform or Fourier transform ?
Thanks
