This course is an introduction to algebraic coding theory. Topics covered will include
The course consists of on weekly lectures (90 minutes, given by Amin Shokrollahi) and one weekly exercise session (90 minutes, given by Frederic Didier). The course and the exercises will be in English. Students are supposed to take scribes which will be put on the web. Grading is based on the final exam and the quality of the scribes. For a thorough study of modern, non-algebraic codes, we highly recommend the class Modern Coding Theory by Professor Urbanke.
Other relevant material will be advertised in the class.
