CIMPA SCHOOL OF CODING THEORY AND ITS APPLICATIONS

(August 6 -19 2023)

MZUZU UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF MATHERMATICS AND STATISTICS

Research School

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.

MZUZU UNIVERSITY -CIMPA CONFERENCE IN PROGRESS

Mzuzu University Vice-Chancellor Professor Wales Singini says CIMPA School is capable of fostering meaningful collaborations, further studies and research in Mathematical Sciences and related areas. Professor Singini was speaking on Monday during the opening of CIMPA School on Coding Theory and Its Applications hosted by Mzuzu University. The international school, which will be held from August 6 – 19, 2023, has attracted participants from Malawi, Rwanda, Zambia, Cameroon, Madagascar, South Africa, Vietnam, and Switzerland. The School has also attracted lecturers from Mzuzu University, University of Malawi, Malawi University of Science and Technology, the University of Pretoria in South Africa, University of the Western Cape in South Africa, Florida Atlantic University in the USA and the University of Neuchatel in Switzerland. The school has been organised with support from the International Centre of Pure and Applied Mathematics (CIMPA), the International Mathematics Union – Commission for Developing Countries (IMU-CDC) and Mzuzu University. #CIMPA
