WiSe 16/17: Seminar: Linear codes
Additional information / Pre-requisites
Aimed at: Bachelor and masters students
Background: Some mathematical maturity is assumed, but there are no prerequisites.
Coding theory is concerned with successfully transmitting data through a noisy channel and correcting errors in corrupted messages. It is of central importance for many applications in computer science or engineering. This seminar gives an introduction to the study of those codes arising from algebraic structures such as matricies or algebraic curves, with emphasis on topics covered in the book "Coding theory, a first course" by San Ling and Chaoping Xing.
