COMP 328: Algebraic Coding Theory

Credit Hours



Codes with algebraic structure for error control are examined. Block codes including Hamming codes and Reed-Muller codes, BCH codes, and other cyclic codes with algebraic structure and their implementation are treated. Other topics may include: convolutional codes, efficiency considerations, and Shannon’s fundamental theorem of information theory.


Students will learn both the theory and application of error-correcting codes.
