COMP 428: Algebraic Coding Theory

Course Information


An introduction to the application and theory of algebraic coding theory.


In this course, major types of error-correcting codes, encoding and decoding, and their main properties will be studied. The codes examined will include the Hamming, Golay, BCH, cyclic, quadratic residue, Reed-Solomon, and Reed-Muller codes.


Students will learn both the theory and application of error-correcting codes.
