Coding Theory


Jump to: navigation, search

Coding Theory comes as an answer to the problem of reliable communication over noisy channels. As a research field, Coding Theory intersects Mathematics, Information Theory, and Electrical Engineering. The minisymposium session we propose focuses on the algebraic aspect of the theory of error-correcting codes, both in the context of Classical Coding Theory and Network Coding, a new emerging research field that studies network transmissions. Algebra plays a crucial role in Coding Theory, as it provides the main tools for the construction of error-correcting codes and their analysis.
