Error-Correcting Codes and Cryptology

General description

An introduction to Coding Theory and Cryptology:

The course will have two parts, the first part will be devoted

to coding theory. Error correcting codes were invented to solve

the engineering problem of correcting the errors that may arise

in the transmission of information on noisy channels. Basics

results are shown, specially those concerning families of linear

error correcting codes. But also some non linear codes as the

convolutional, will be presented.

The second part will be devoted

to the problem of data encryption. Some classical cryptosystems

will be introduced, including some that make use of the correcting
