Y.S. Han et al. have proposed an efficient maximum likelihood decoding (MLD) algorithm using A* algorithm which is the graph search method. In this paper, we propose a new MLD algorithm for linear block codes. The MLD algorithm proposed in this paper improves that given by Han et al. utilizing codewords of dual codes. This scheme reduces the number of generated codewords in the MLD algorithm. We show that the complexity of the proposed decoding algorithm is reduced compared to that given by Han et al. without increasing the probability of decoding error.
