Special Topics in Information Sciences and Systems - Algebraic Coding Theory
A broad introduction to the mathematics of coding theory and its applications in electrical engineering and computer science. Topics will include algebraic error correcting codes such as Reed-Solomon codes and applications to data storage; block and convolutional codes and their applications in wireline and wireless communication; fountain codes for content distribution; quantum error correction and quantum computing; and waveform design for radar and remote sensing.

Not Open to Freshmen.
Students are expected to know linear algebra and some knowledge of basic digital communication would be an advantage. There will be a mid-term paper and an individual final project with a wide range of topics. The course is designed in part to be a bridge between coursework and research.
