Coding Theory

Course aims

Each student is supposed to
- analyze real life problems
- express them as a coding theory problem
- solve the problem using coding theory methods
- give an interpretation of the theoretical results in the terms of the original problems
At the same time he should decide what are the limits of an ideal theoretical solution in contrast to the real situation.
