Abstract

In the theory of error correcting codes, a sender (Alice) wants to send a message to a receiver (Bob), over a noisy channel. Strategies for Alice and Bob have been studied since the works of Shannon and Hamming from the late 1940's, from many different communities. Coding theory is a fundamental solution to challenges that arise in communication, storage, cryptography, and others; as the world changes, our challenges in these areas change, and the scenario changes for Alice and Bob. Fueled by these new scenarios, coding theory remains a rapidly advancing area of research.
