In this paper, the authors introduce a decoder for binary linear codes based on Genetic Algorithm (GA) over the Gaussian and Rayleigh flat fading channel. The performances and computational complexity of their decoder applied to BCH and convolutional codes are good compared to chase-2 and Viterbi algorithm respectively. It show that their algorithm is less complex for linear block codes of large block length; furthermore it's performances can be improved by tuning the decoder's parameters, in particular the number of individuals by population and the number of generations.
