1998 Project Report Error-Correcting Code

Error-correcting codes (Led by Giuliana Davidoff).

The students were Sukaina Alarakhia, Landon Cox, Paul Lambert, Aaron Weinberg, Tom Wexler and Liangyi Zhao. They investigated error-correcting codes, in particular weight distributions of ternary minimal codes, ternary Zetterberg codes, Melas codes for primes bigger than three, and linear codes associated to curves of higher genus. This project led to a senior thesis and will result in two or more publications.
