The main activities in our group are related to:
This is the mathematical theory of encoding information in such a way that it becomes resistant to transmission errors. The main topics are the study of the properties of various codes (cyclic codes, BCH-codes, MDS-codes, algebraic-geometric codes) and the construction of efficient decoding algorithms for these codes.
This is the mathematical theory of protecting information against unauthorized access (privacy), determining if a message has been altered by a third party (integrity), adding a signature to an electronic document and verifying the identity.
The group is part of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science within the section Discrete Mathematics and of EI/Ψ, the Eindhoven Institute for the Protection of Systems and Information.
