Coding theory is a remarkable example of how various areas of mathematics can be used to solve problems in the storage and transfer of information. In this school, participants will be introduced to various techniques used in recent years to solve problems in coding theory. The aim is to motivate participants to do research in coding theory.
Participants will study coding theory in general including cyclic codes and Goppa codes. They will also explore, among others, combinatorial and algebraic properties of graphs and designs related to codes, permutation decoding of codes from graphs and designs, linear codes with complementary dual, evaluation codes in code-based cryptography, networks and network coding problems, rank metric codes and coding in distributed systems.
