In the previous two chapters, we have seen on the one hand that any code of distance d can be list decoded up to its Johnson radius (which is always greater than d/2). On the other hand, we have seen that, in general, the list decoding radius (for polynomial-sized lists), purely as a function of the distance of the code, cannot be larger than the Johnson radius.
