MTC Online: Math for Fixing Mistakes

Facilitated by Pedro Morales-Almazán (University of California, Santa Cruz) We will explore some algorithms that make communicating possible despite errors and noise. We will talk about transforming messages into codes in such a way that errors in communication can be fixed seamlessly by the algorithm itself. Be prepared to encode and decode messages in an error …
