Error-correcting codes in ring constructions


Speaker: Andrei Kelarev, University of Tasmania at Hobart
Location: 693 Kerr
Start time: Mon, Apr 16 2001, 4:10PM

For several types of well-known cyclic codes it has been shown that they are ideals in certain ring constructions. Additional structure helps to find more efficient encoding and decoding algorithms for known codes, and to find new codes. This talk is devoted to introductory preliminaries, known fact, and recent results on this research topic.
