Aspects of Coding. Applications of Linear Algebra to Communication and Information Science. [and] A Double-Error Correcting Code. Applications of Algebra to Information Theory. Modules and Monographs in Undergraduate Mathematics and Its Applications Project. UMAP Units 336 and 337.
Cohen, Simon; Sherman, Gary J.
These two modules cover aspects of the coding process and algebraic coding theory. The first unit defines coding as a branch of information and communication science, which draws extensively upon many diverse mathematical fields, primarily abstract and linear algebra, number theory, probability and statistics, and combinatorial theory. Aspects of the process, including linear codes and error correction, are discussed. The second unit focuses on the construction of a double-error correcting code. Both units contain problems and answers to these exercises. The second unit contains a model exam and concludes with an answer key to this test. (MP)
