Coding Theory

7.5 credits

A problem when it comes to sending information via some kind of a channel, is that noise may cause errors to occur, so that distorted versions of the messages will reach the receiver. One way to get around this problem is to encode the information in such a way, that such errors will be noticed. Under some conditions it will even be possible to correct the errors. In coding theory, one studies different ways to encode the information, so that error detection and correction can be performed.
