Abstract Algebra in Coding Theory

Course aims

After passing the course a student will be able:
- use congruences when solving discrete problems,
- describe symmetries of real world problem using groups,
- calculate polynomial operations in modular arithmetics,
- construct selected Galois fields and simple codes based on these,
- construct simple finite vector fields,
- perform comutation on code words in vector notation,
- perform operations on selected codes in matrix notation,
- encode and decode a message in a simple code,
- detect and correct basic mistakes in transmission.
