This is an introductory course in Coding Theory.
The course will be dedicated to the mathematical aspects of Coding Theory which studies the problem of correcting errors in messages transmitted through a non secure channel with noise.
AIMS AND CONTENT
The aim of the course is to present the basic topics of Coding Theory.
AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES
At the end of the course students will be able to:
- recognise the main classes of error correcting codes;
- master the main constructions of linear codes;
- recognise the principal decoding algorithms.
Necessary prerequisites are the following: vector spaces, groups, fields.
The courses "Algebra Lineare e Geometria Analitica" and "Algebra 2" are recommended.
- introduction to the problem of error-correction in data transmission;
- linear codes over finite fields;
- Hamming distance and minimum distance decoding;
- perfect and MDS codes;
- Hamming codes;
- codes constructions;
- cyclic codes;
- Goppa codes
- Code-based criptography
- codes on algebraic curves

The class will start according to the academic calendar.
L'orario di tutti gli insegnamenti è consultabile all'indirizzo EasyAcademy.
Students with DSA certification ("specific learning disabilities"), disability or other special educational needs are advised to contact the teacher at the beginning of the course to agree on teaching and examination methods that, in compliance with the teaching objectives, take account of individual learning arrangements and provide appropriate compensatory tools.
Questions of the oral exam will concern the main topics presented during the lectures. The aim is to establish not only whether students will have reached an appropriate level of knowledge, but also whether they can analize and approach problems related to Coding Theory.
