We regret to announce the cancellation of USGTC camps for the summer of 2018. The last-minute cancelation is the result of the USGTC's delayed/missing application to South Hadley's Board of Health. Mount Holyoke College recognizes the deep inconvenience this will cause families and participants who were hoping to attend the camp.
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.
