Finite completion of comma-free codes. Part 1
RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications - Informatique Théorique et Applications, Tome 38 (2004) no. 2, pp. 91-115.

This paper is the first step in the solution of the problem of finite completion of comma-free codes. We show that every finite comma-free code is included in a finite comma-free code of particular kind, which we called, for lack of a better term, canonical comma-free code. Certainly, finite maximal comma-free codes are always canonical. The final step of the solution which consists in proving further that every canonical comma-free code is completed to a finite maximal comma-free code, is intended to be published in a forthcoming paper.
