› Find signed collectible books: 'Codes and Algebraic Curves (Oxford Lecture Series in Mathematics and Its Applications)'
A fascinating branch of mathematics since antiquity, the geometry of curves has been extensively developed and become highly abstract. Recently links have been made with the subject of error correction, leading to the creation of geometric Goppa codes, a new and important area of coding theory. This book is an expanded and updated version of one part of the author's successful book Error-Correcting Codes and Finite Fields. Here he gives an elementary introduction to Goppa codes and includes many examples, calculations, and applications. The first part of the book emphasizes motivations, giving precedence to applications over proofs. The second part then provides the formal theory, with some concepts and proofs simplified without sacrificing rigor.

This book provides engineers and computer scientists with all the tools necessary to implement modern error-processing techniques. It assumes only a basic knowledge of linear algebra and develops the mathematical theory in parallel with the codes. Central to the text are worked examples which motivate and explain the theory. The first part introduces the basic ideas of coding theory. The second and third cover the theory of finite fields and give a detailed treatment of BCH and Reed-Solomon codes. The fourth part is devoted to Goppa codes, both classical and geometric, concluding with the Skorobogatov-Vladut error processor. A special feature is a simplified (but rigorous) treatment of the geometry of curves.
