In this contribution nonlinear coding theory is invoked in order to study redundant residue number system (RRNS) based channel codes. We analyse some unsolved problems of RRNS codes, exploring their weight-distribution, distance-distribution and coding performance. The conventional algorithms used for error-detection and error-correction in RRNS codes are improved and unified in the context of a `minimum-distance decoding' algorithm, which can efficiently detect or correct multiple residue digit errors. Systematic RRNS codes are designed and their coding theory as well as performance is studied.
