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.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
